One of the most sought-after values in Bordeaux, Chateau Marjosse is the personal vineyard of the famed Pierre Lurton, managing director for Cheval Blanc and d'Yquem! A hidden gem in our portfolio, the 2019 Marjosse is made up of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc with a splash of old vines Malbec from his personal estate close to Saint Emilion. Rich, deep and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2019 is incredibly appealing. He's dialed back the production lately and it's paid huge dividends with the quality of his "little wine" starting with the 2019 vintage. Both Antonio Galloni and Robert Parker have called this a must buy.
"The 2019 Marjosse Rouge is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. It rolls easily out of the glass with expressive notes of raspberry coulis, wild blueberries, and boysenberries, plus suggestions of clove oil, garrigue, and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is taut and muscular, delivering intense black fruit and savory layers with a firm backbone of fine-grained tannins, finishing long and refreshing. It needs time!" Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, 93 Points (The Wine Independent)
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Marjosse has a come-hither nose of kirsch, stewed black cherries and warm plums with hints of spice cake, wilted roses, oolong tea and Sichuan pepper. The medium-bodied palate is plushy textured with bags of scrumptious black and red fruits and a lively backbone, finishing fragrant." The Wine Advocate, 90-92 Points
