"A meaty tone here too with lots of fresh, ripe cherry aromas. . 88% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc. Dangerously soft and smooth on the palate, silky tannins with a lovely immediate deep flavour on the palate. This is more subtle, less immediately juicy but has real charm and good depth. You feel the flavours linger on the tongue with a perfumed, floral aspect to them. This is delicate but driving with good presence and still superb freshness. An elegance to it as well. Lovely. Good mouthwatering acidity, still on the light side, well balanced and enjoyable."

The 2019 Château Marjosse is a delightful Bordeaux wine that offers great value and approachability. This vintage exhibits a deep ruby color and opens with inviting aromas of red berries, plum, and a touch of spice. On the palate, it delivers a medium-bodied and fruit-forward experience, with flavors of cherries, raspberries, and a hint of vanilla. The wine showcases supple tannins, balanced acidity, and a smooth finish. The 2019 Château Marjosse is an excellent everyday wine that demonstrates the estate's commitment to producing accessible and enjoyable Bordeaux wines. Another winner!
Château Marjosse is a historic estate built in 1782 and located 14 km south of Saint-Emilion. Its history took a major turn in the early 1990s when the Deleuze family decided to lease part of the parcels to a young ambitious winemaker named Pierre Lurton, who would become the current General Manager of Yquem and Cheval Blanc. Little by little, he bought back the different parcels of the estate and opened a new chapter in 2017 with the arrival of Jean Marc Domme as technical director. The rest of the story is still being written as Pierre and Jean-Marc dive deeper and deeper into the subtleties of this magnificent terroir seeking to capture its essence vintage after vintage.
Its 35ha vineyard is located on exceptional clay and limestone soils. Pierre Lurton's "Secret Garden" is a patchwork of young and old vines, almost a century old.
