Marks and reviews
The Chateau La Marzelle vineyard covers 15 hectares on the Isle, also known as the "Haute Terrasse de Saint-Émilion". The 30-year-old vines are planted in soils of ancient sand, deep gravel and blue clay.
After a mild autumn and a cool start to winter, temperatures rose and led to early budding. The cool and wet spring was followed by a hot and dry summer, leading to a homogeneous and rapid veraison. The day / night temperature differences helped develop the aromatic quality of the fruit, which reached perfect ripeness in time for the harvest.
Manual harvest from September 24 to October 7. Plot vinification in barrels and in thermoregulated stainless steel vats.
Aging in French oak barrels and terracotta amphorae.
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau La Marzelle 2019 displays a dark and intense color. The nose is expressive, revealing aromas of black fruit, and creamy, spicy notes. On the palate, the Chateau La Marzelle 2019 offers an ample texture and well-integrated tannins on a silky structure.
