Winemaker Notes

Deep and brilliant color. The nose expresses a sweet mixture of red and black fruit aromas, followed by notes of vanilla. The palate of this 2011 shows a lovely texture. The tannic framework is velvety and soft which gives the wine a great deal of elegance and finesse. Made from 100% Merlot, this particular Marsau shows the same voluptuous and full-bodied style as the 2008.

Wow. This is really well structured with beautiful berry, dark-chocolate, mineral and spice character. It’s full and tannic but polished and reserved. Excellent. Better in 2016.

Chateau Marsau, Cotes de Francs, Bordeaux, France
Image of winery
Just a few kilometres east of Saint Emilion, in the historical village of Francs, the Chateau Marsau vines command one of the highest reaches of the Côtes de Bordeaux-Francs appellation. Here, in this prized location covering just a few hectares, on gentle, southfacing slopes, the Marsau vines penetrate deep into the red and grey clay soils, guaranteeing a constant supply of water to the vineyard. Merlot, which has become a symbol of the right bank, is the only grape variety cultivated on these quite remarkable clay soils. The vines are rigorously selected for their suitability to the terroir and their ability to cope with restricted yields, which promote even grape ripening in optimum growing conditions.

At Marsau, given the relatively modest size of the vineyard, meticulous and painstaking vineyard management is carried out throughout the growing period, tailored specifically to each vine. Winemaking techniques are applied selectively, tailored to each individual vineyard block and take into consideration the specific nature of the vintage. The objective is to harness the natural concentration of the fruit, and in so doing, reveal the most expressive and distinctive character of the terroir and grape variety. The wines are aged in French oak barrels in separate batches, to retain the individual identity of each parcel.
