2018 Chateau Marjosse (750ml)

Merlot from Bordeaux, France

2018 Chateau Marjosse

Beautiful and precise fruit with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins.

91-92 points, James Suckling (Apr 2019)

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+ points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate (Apr 2019)

The 2018 Marjosse offers lovely black currant and raspberry aromas, fresh and vibrant in the glass; plum jam and black olive notes emerge with time. The palate is underpinned by fine tannins, good substance and a crisp, cedar-tinged finish that is a pure joy. A must-buy from Pierre Lurton’s home estate.

90-92 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Nov 2019)

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.
