2018 Chateau Marjosse Bordeaux
Winemaker Notes: Every year, technical and cultural improvements are made in order to offer a superior quality in each vintage. In 2015, we have further reduced the volume of the harvest (through green harvesting and a stricter selection of berries) in order to gain in precision and quality. Chateau Marjosse is the personal vineyard of the famed Pierre Lurton, managing director for Cheval Blanc and d'Yquem! Grandson and son of a winegrower, he has at heart to enhance the value of a terroir from which he originates and which he still lives in today, that of the Entre-deux-Mers.
James Suckling - "Beautiful and precise fruit with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins. (91-92pts)"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "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. (90-92+pts)"
Vinous - (90-92pts)"
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2018 Château Marjosse is a juicy, lively, medium-bodied effort that has outstanding notes of ripe black cherries, violets, and a touch of minerality. It has good acidity, terrific balance, and should end up being an outstanding wine. (89-91pts)"
