Marks and reviews
Great terroirs are not exclusively limited to the most famous appellations and Chateau Marsau is the perfect example.
Established in a very green setting on one of the highest points of the Francs Cotes de Bordeaux appellation, east of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Marsau boasts a 13-hectare vineyard with a superb terroir. Planted in clay soils, a single grape variety flourishes perfectly: Merlot, the Dark Lord of the right bank of the Bordeaux region.
2021 is the estate’s first certified organic vintage.
2021 was a challenging vintage with extreme conditions. The vineyard was not only affected by a spring frost, but also by an episode of mildew. Despite low yields (26 hl), the grapes harvested are balanced and expressive.
Fresh, the nose gives off an array of floral fragrances.
The palate is bright and seductive with its lively and refined expression.
