The is compacted and beautiful with chocolate, berries and walnuts. Full-bodied, reserved and pretty. New wine for me. Wow...

The 2016 Haut Marbuzet has exactly the kind of bouquet you expect from this Saint Estephe owned by the Duboscq family: decadent and very ripe red berry fruit intermixed with kirsch and crème de cassis. Fortunately, it delivers all this ripeness with satisfying freshness and detail. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, plenty of concentrated black fruit tinged with tobacco and white pepper. All it is missing is just a little more persistent on the aftertaste, but otherwise, this is no more, no less than an absolutely delicious Saint-Estèphe that will give 20-25 years of drinking pleasure. No other wine from the appellation this year will give you so much joy.

The structure of this wine is firm, in a classic Saint-Estèphe style. Yet at the same time, the fruit is so generous, with a ripe layer of black currants and contrasting acidity.
