Château Haut-Marbuzet

The origins of this Château date back to the 18th century, but it is only since its acquisition in 1952 by new owners that this Château has achieved notoriety, being classified as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932, promoted to the rank of Exceptional in the 2003 classification and finally proposed in 2009 for classification as a potential 4th Cru Classé.

The terroir is carried by a gravelly hilltop on a clay-limestone subsoil, a character and a guarantee of exceptional qualities.

Description Château Haut-Marbuzet 2014.

Located on the Marbuzet plateau, between Château Cos d'Estournel and Château Montrose, the terroir is carried by a croup of Günzian gravel with a clay-limestone subsoil.

Harvesting under conditions that sometimes verge on over-ripeness, high temperature fermentation and ageing in new oak barrels all contribute to making Haut-Marbuzet a powerful, spicy wine with a flamboyant style and characteristic eXOtic aromas.

With its splendid deep, brilliant red color, the wine has an intense nose. There's plenty of depth thanks to gourmet black berries, notes of gingerbread, toast but, also brandied cherry and plum. On the palate, the wine seduces with its relatively fresh attack, counterbalanced by a certain power.

The tannic structure is voluminous but very silky, bringing a certain refinement to the whole. The aromatic palette is similar to the nose, with the addition of a lovely woodiness. The enveloping finish lingers for long Secondes.
