A balanced red wine from Saint-Estephe

Chateau Haut-Marbuzet wine is produced from a 66-hectare estate in the Saint-Estephe appellation. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

At tasting, the Chateau Haut-Marbuzet 2006 offers a complex wine. On the nose, one can smell a fragrant bouquet with currant and cranberry aromas, as well as rather saline fragrances. This is a fleshy wine. On the palate, the wine is balanced, but requires a greater concentration. There are notes of red fruit. On the finish, the wine ends a little too quickly, but offers pleasurable spicy notes. This wine can be consumed now (2016) or up until 2021-2024.

Parker : 87 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at Farr Vintners' horizontal, the 2006 Haut Marbuzet has a perfumed bouquet with redcurrant and cranberry scents, slightly savoury and meaty. The palate is balanced but needs more depth. Laden with abundant and quite plump, ferrous red fruit, it then cuts away too rapidly on the finish, although the Moroccan spices loitering around on the aftertaste give some pleasure. Drink now and over the next 5-8 years. Tasted April 2016.
