Marks and reviews
Founded in 2001, Chateau Marojallia lies between the vineyards of Chateau Le Tertre and Chateau Mombrison, within the Margaux appellation on the left bank of Bordeaux. Advised by Muriel Andraud, creator of the first garage wines in Saint-Emilion with her husband, Jean-Luc Thunevin, Philippe Porcheron makes a fine wine which magnifies the exceptional potential of the Margaux appellation. Developed with rigor, passion and a perpetual quest for excellence, the wines of Chateau Marojallia are recognized by the greatest critics for their aromatic richness and quality.
Chateau Marojallia 2021 is a Margaux wine that stems from a 5.83-hectare vineyard. The vines are around 60 years old and are planted on deep gravel and sandy loam soils, typical features of the appellation.
A contrasting year, 2021 began with a mild, wet winter that favored early budding of the vines. The spring frosts had no impact on the vineyard. In spite of a strong mildew pressure, the ideal summer temperatures without any heatwaves and the mildness of September helped to preserve the terroir’s healthy condition and refine the ripening of the grapes.
Vinification and aging
The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel truncated cone-shaped vats. Vatting time: 30 to 38 days. Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 5 days at 6°C. The wine is aged exclusively in barrels (100% new French barrels - 7 coopers).
