Chateau Marojallia (Futures Pre-sale) 2010
Bordeaux Red Blends from Margaux, Bordeaux, France
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
"Even better than I thought it would be from barrel, this 15,000-bottle cuvee of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot made by the partner of Jean-Luc Thunevin, Murielle Thunevin, is sensational. Classic Margaux notes of spring flowers, black currant and licorice as well as hints of blueberry pie, lead pencil shavings and camphor jump from the glass of this full-bodied, dense, moderately tannic yet exceptionally well-endowed effort. It is a big wine from Margaux, but it never loses its sense of perspective, finesse and freshness. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20-25 years.
The Wine Advocate
"Allies a dark, roasted espresso aroma to a core of fleshy currant paste, steeped fig and blackberry fruit, all backed by charcoal-coated grip. The long, muscular finish paves the way for some solid cellar time. A powerful, modern style that's hard to deny. Best from 2015 through 2030."
