Winemaker's Notes:

From its first tastings, the wine proved extraordinarily successful thanks to its elegance and delicious softness. "Very rich, fruity, with vanilla, blackcurrent and licorice flavours. An intense purple robe combined with roundness. Very long on the palate." The delicate quality of the appellation is balanced by an impressive level of concentration and power.

The winemaking process includes a long vatting period in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. 18 months in new, French oak barrels.

My Notes:

About Chateau Marojallia:

This outstanding estate with its select furnishings is also above all renowned for its outstanding wine. Marojallia, meaning Margaux in Latin, is the name given to the wine produced from the vineyards situated around the Chateau. The first "garage wine" in the Medoc, it is one of those rare wines, painstakingly made and lovingly aged, which is scrupulously produced in such small quantities that the production equipment can be housed in a garage.
Growing in deep grevelly soil, Marojallia was created in 1999 only to be immediately and unanimously hailed by critics and the public. It delighted Robert Parker who ranked it among the very finest wines of the Margaux appelation.
