Menés de main de maître par Pierre Lurton , le vignoble et les vinifications ont rapidement porté Marjosse parmi les Bordeaux les plus réputés.
Beautiful and precise fruit with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins.
Vin délicieux à la bouche ample, fondante au toucher noble avec du goût en finale. Belle longueur séveuse à la tanicité très enveloppée.
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.
Direct, with plum and blackberry notes backed by a rounded finish that has a touch of sweet tobacco in it. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now.
There was no 2017 produced at this estate because of frost, but it makes a strong return in 2018. It has good concentration and some savoury notes to the cassis, liquorice and black pepper spice. 25% oak ageing in 500l casks. 10% Cabernet Sauvignon completes the blend. Jean Marc Domme is the new technical director at this estate, owned by Pierre Lurton.
