This is a rich and dense Marsau and probably the best ever. Full body and a wonderful depth of fruit and chocolate. Love the texture and intensity. Shows sophistication.
This sports a fleshy feel, with warm plum and cassis notes supported by a fresh chalky spine. Shows good energy through the finish. Sneakily long. (Web only, 2017) (JM)
This is an extremely reliable Côtes wine from owner Mathieu Chardronnier that absolutely deserves to be recognised for its succulent fruit and restrained but confident extraction and balance. This is very good, emphasising what 2016 does so well with the reds. It is juicy and powerful but not excessive, making it an utterly drinkable wine. (JA)
Barrel Sample. This wine is richly spicy and refreshingly juicy. Fine tannins give the wine its structure while leaving the beautiful fruit right up front. This will be ready from 2025. (RV)
The 2016 Marsau, which is pure Merlot picked 7-15 October, undergoes a soft extraction and now tends to be blended earlier during the élevage. It has a lovely nose of brambly black fruit, lively and well defined with a pastille-like purity, a second bottle showing a touch of camphor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, tightly wound blackberry and raspberry fruit with a light, slightly linear finish. (NM)
The 2016 Marsau packs a serious punch. Firm and muscular in its first impression, the 2016 offers notable intensity in its dark fruit. There is an element of austerity in the tannin that needs to soften. Otherwise, this is a solid showing. (AG)
