Winemaker's Notes
Deep, rich color. A nose of black fruit, menthol, evolving into mineral notes when aired (pencil lead, chalk). An elegant palate, voluptuous, supple, silky tannins.
.
Critically Acclaimed
Intense red-clay and blackberry aromas with brambleberries and mushrooms. Full-bodied, soft and round, yet the tannins pill you in with their power. Pretty depth and intensity. Needs time to mellow.
.
James Suckling, 93 Points
The 2015 Marsau is medium to deep garnet-purple in colour with a savoury, meaty, earthy nose of smoked meats and scorched earth over a core of warm plums and blackberry pie plus a hint of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, chewy structure and good concentration of muscular fruit, finishing savoury/sweet.

Intense red-clay and blackberry aromas with brambleberries and mushrooms, too. Full-bodied, soft and round, yet the tannins pull you in with their power. Pretty depth and intensity. Needs time to mellow.

Decanter - 93 Points

Another strong showing from the CĂ´tes, this time from Mathieu Chardonnier's home estate. You would be extremely happy to share this impactful, fleshy but uncomplicated wine with friends. It showcases the potential of a 100% Merlot wine, allowing itself to rely simply on juicy, ripe fruit to make an impression.

Wine Spectator - 90 Points

Very solid, with a beam of black currant and fig paste flavors enlivened with singed juniper and warm tobacco notes. Reveals a light charcoal hint through the finish. Focused and fresh. Drink now through 2021.
