An accomplished red wine from Francs Côtes de Bordeaux

Château Marsau is a single-varietal red wine from Merlot produced in the appellation Francs Côtes de Bordeaux. The 12-hectare vineyard benefits from a soil of rich clay. These soils expressed their full potential especially well in 2016, which proves to be the top vintage in the history of the estate. The vinification was patiently implemented, with a preference for gentle extractions.

The fruity Château Marsau 2016 offers soft and silky tannins, showing itself to be structured, fresh, complex and boasting an excellent cellaring potential. The wine is very accomplished.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Marsau, which is pure Merlot picked 7-15 October, undergoes a soft extraction and now tends to be blended earlier during the élevage. It has a lovely nose of brambly black fruit, lively and well defined with a pastille-like purity, a second bottle showing a touch of camphor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, tightly wound blackberry and raspberry fruit with a light, slightly linear finish. I probably like the 2015 better last year but it is still a well made Francs Côtes de Bordeaux that belongs to the Chadronnier family, owners of Bordeaux merchant CVBG.
