Chateau La Marzelle 2016: a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru of great magnitude

Chateau La Marzelle is a Grand Cru Classe of the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. The 16.28-hectare vineyard has vines with an average age of 30 years. This one plot vineyard is made up with 80% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon vines that enjoy a diverse terroir of gravel, sand on top of clay, and ancient sand. This is the second year that the vineyard has been cultivated biodynamically. The Chateau La Marzelle 2016 is aged in new French oak barrels, and in six terracotta 500-litre jars.

The 2016 vintage of Château La Marzelle took place in extremely complex climatic conditions. However, after a dry summer and a beautiful warm early autumn, the harvest took place from September 29 to October 14.

The Chateau La Marzelle 2016 reveals a deep red color and purple highlights. It is a wine of ample volume that is volumptuous and creamy. This wine has a great balance and a lovely length.

This comment is mainly intended to describe the general profile of a wine at a given moment. Note that over time, the wine may offer other organoleptic qualities as it evolves in bottle.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 la Marzelle is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% one-year-old oak and amphorae for 16 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features cassis, crushed blackberries and black cherries with hints of cedar, cassis and pencil lead. The medium to full-bodied palate is firm and grainy with a good mid-palate core of black fruit, finishing savory. 5,000 cases produced.
