What does this wine taste like?
It is a purple wine with a nose that initially remembers the tar, the forest floor and the aromas of wrought earth. Just a few minutes later, the elegant aromas of very ripe cherries, blueberries and blackberries appear with a touch of licorice, bay leaves and spices for baking. In the mouth it is fatty and velvety, of great freshness and with mature and flexible tannins drawing a firm spine. Its end of fruit compote and beautiful accents of red fruit reminiscent of raspberry cake, but also rosehip tea and wild sage.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling
Develops nicely, within >30 min upon opening or in a decanter, into a smooth Bordelaise taste, no punches, no acid trace, tiny bit of tannin. Fits duck or lamb cooked on a sweet-ish side. Feels pretty light even when drunk in quantities.
Good value Bordeaux
A well balanced wine with a good fruit presence. Easy drinking at a keen price.his wine will not disappoint.
Estoy empezando a probar estos vinos normalmente suelo beber Riojas pero me están gustando mucho me parecen unos vinos con unos sabores muy agradables
vin que vous pouvez boire tous les jours, de bon rapport qualité prix
Visivamente di un rosso rubino abbastanza cupo, al naso note di frutta nera e ciliegie sotto spirito in bocca ben strutturato con tannini fini media persistenza, mi aspettavo più note fruttate soprattutto in bocca ma un buon vino..

Built in 1782, Château Marjosse is a historic property located 14 kilometres south of Saint-Émilion and surrounded by 16 hectares of vines thriving in clay and limestone soils.

Although some of their vines are relatively young, others date back to 1920. ...
