Chateau Marjosse Bordeaux 2018

Ships in 2-3 business days.
This fresh and complex blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec is the pride of wine-making maestro Pierre Lurton, carefully vinified at the historic chateau near Saint-Emilion that he calls home. Pierre is managing director for Cheval Blanc and d'Yquem.

The 2018 Marjosse is made up of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc with a splash of old Malbec. Big old barrels were used for 25% of the crop. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with a compelling nose of baking spices, raspberry pie, warm red and black currants, rose hip tea and fragrant earth with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate is filled with fragrant red and black fruit, framed by great freshness and soft, supple tannins, finishing on a floral note.

A touch of reduction on the nose which clears as it relaxes in the glass. This is well put together, has definition and finesse, and is punching above its weight in the appellation. Ambitious, well managed tannins and juicy red fruits; 2% Malbec completes the plantings. I don't have the 2020 blend. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028.

The 2018 Marjosse offers lovely black currant and raspberry aromas, fresh and vibrant in the glass; plum jam and black olive notes emerge with time. The palate is underpinned by fine tannins, good substance and a crisp, cedar-tinged finish that is a pure joy. A must-buy from Pierre Lurton’s home estate.

Beautiful and precise fruit with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins.
