“The Pétrus of the Côtes de Francs” - Robert Parker's
"Aromas of plum, berry, meat, flowers, and mushroom. Full to medium body, round and lightly chewy tannins and a savory finish. Hard not to drink now. Plenty of character and balance. Pure merlot. Drink or hold."
- James Suckling
"One of the best young wines I’ve had from this top Côtes de Francs property. Deeply coloured, highly aromatic and sweetly oaked, it has finesse and balance, stylish tannins and ripe, supple violet and raspberry fruit. A mini Pomerol?"
- Tim Atkin MW
"A structured wine from the Chadronnier family, it is full of tannins and also full of sweeping black-fruit flavors. It is perfumed, rich and concentrated. Don't drink until at least 2020 to get the full generosity of the wine"
- Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
Château Marsau lies in the Côtes de Francs, where Merlot planted on clay soils creates a wine reminiscent of top Pomerol. Under the stewardship of owner and winemaker Anne-Laurence Chadronnier, the quality and reputation of this impressive estate has rocketed. Most famously, it has been dubbed “the Pétrus of the Côtes de Francs” by Robert Parker. Situated at the highest point of a plateau on a patch of blue clay, it is no surprise that Marsau has attracted such attention. Anne-Laurence’s skillful winemaking, which draws out the estate’s innate elegance and precision, is matched by her vineyards’ fine terroir. Since 2020, Marsau has been certified organic.
