Winemaker Notes

With infinite delicacy and charm, the 2019 vintage is imbuedwith freshness and light. The wines flit from fresh fruit to floralharmonies. A rich blend of perfume, revealing notes of Morellocherries, violets and spice. A lace so delicately gossamer-fine, it seems like silk. A subtle tableau, inspired by nature and reflecting the landscape. Airy and subterranean, the multiple nuances of clay, fragrances from above and below the soil. The wines are vivid and bright. The saline touch on the finish instills that oceanic feeling synonymous with being at one with nature.

Blend: 100% Merlot

The Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling

The aromas of orange peel, citrus, fresh mushroom, bark, smoked meat and currants is fantastic. The palate is pure and focused with super-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Muscular and formed, yet agile, Takes the appellation to a new level. Partially aged in amphore. From organically grown grapes.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Marsau exhibits a lively and fresh bouquet with aromas of dark cherries, flowers, peony, rose, cassis and dark berries. On the palate, this wine is beautifully balanced with finely sculpted tannins and a juicy texture representing the essence of great Merlot growing on clay soils. This is a serious wine that illustrates the estate’s upward trajectory.

Chateau Marsau  Winery Image
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.

With generous fruit and supple tannins, Merlot is made in a range of styles from everyday-drinking to world-renowned and age-worthy. Merlot is the dominant variety in the wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where it is often blended with Cabernet Franc to spectacular result. Merlot also frequently shines on its own, particularly in California’s Napa Valley. Somm Secret—As much as Miles derided the variety in the 2004 film, Sideways, his prized 1961 Château Cheval Blanc is actually a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
