Owned by the legendary Pierre Lurton (of Château Cheval Blanc & Château d’Yquem) since 1990, this 50-hectare estate produces some of the region’s most delicious, easy-drinking wines that promise to satisfy a variety of palate preferences – and the only thing better than their taste is the bottles’ attractive price tag.
Winery: "Beautiful bright and intense purple color with purple hues. The nose expresses candied, cherry and ripe fruit with grilled and elegant woody notes. The palate, supple and round on the attack, reveals a pretty fruity flesh with good tannins, round and tasty, which persist pleasantly in the finish."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 Points "The 2018 Marjosse is made up of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc with a splash of old Malbec. Big old barrels were used for 25% of the crop. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with a compelling nose of baking spices, raspberry pie, warm red and black currants, rose hip tea and fragrant earth with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate is filled with fragrant red and black fruit, framed by great freshness and soft, supple tannins, finishing on a floral note."
James Suckling, 92 Points "Beautiful and precise fruit with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins."
