Château Certan-Marzelle combines, in a unique way, both tradition and modernism. Sharing its denomination with Vieux Château Certan and Château Certan de May, the property was originally part of Château Certan Giraud.
Unlike its mythical neighbors, Château Certan Marzelle is planted with 100% Merlot, and its 20 year-old vines produce wines with great softness and charm. This wine is to be enjoyed in its youth as well as after a few years of aging.
"This plump, fleshy, seductive, 100% Merlot cuvee from Christian Moueix exhibits herbal, sweet plum, cherry, and mocha notes along with supple tannin and decent acidity, but little depth and richness. It is a charming, sensual Pomerol to enjoy over the next decade."
