  • 93 James Suckling

    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.

  • 93 Decanter

    Dense, black red. Warm, settled, resinous and respiring: a quiet gravity; seriousness of aroma. Enticing and classy. A deep, dense, mouth-lling, classic Right Bank Bordeaux that hurtles well beyond whatever expectations one might have for Francs. Super stuff. (Tasted: 4/8/2019)

  • 92-93 James Suckling

    “A very dense and rich Marsau with big tannin structure and ripe fruit. Full body, tar and blackberry character. Asphalt and graphite undertones. Fascinating young red. (Tasted: 4/5/2016)”

  • 90 Wine Advocate (Lisa Perroti-Brown)

    The 2015 Marsau is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a savory, 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 savory/sweet. (Tasted: 2/22/2018)

  • 90 Wines Spectator (James Molesworth)

    “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.”

  • 17/20 Bettane & Desseauve

    “Creamy and fresh, very nice racy texture, expressive fruity, beautiful fine length. The great freshness of the successes of the vintage. Excellent grape maturity, creamy texture, lots of background and serious earthy notes typical of the ribs. Local wine well adapted to our time by its accessible and sensual side. (Tasted: 4/28/2016)”

  • 16.5/20 La Revue du Vin de France

    “A very beautiful material, an intense and dark color, a great mellowness of tannins on the palate. A little alcohol on the finish. Beautiful ambitious wine. (Tasted: 4/1/2016)

  • 16/20 Jancis Robinson

    “The Chadronnier family of Dourthe/CVBG now own this property. Very ripe and plump on the nose. Only just enough acidity but lovely round texture and fine tannins on the end. Should provide early pleasure. (Tasted: 5/8/2016)”

  • 4/5 Vinifera - Jacques Perrin

    Beautiful dark color. Nose on slightly roasted notes, cherry. Very fruity on the palate, nice texture, full-bodied, fruity tannin, loose and really delicious finish.
