This is one of the tightest, most backward wines in the Jonathan Malthus portfolio. The grapes come from an old-vine parcel near Angelus and Beausejour-Duffau, and the final product is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc. Again displaying plenty of minerality, which seems to be a prevailing theme throughout the 2010s from Malthus, the 2010 Vieux Chateau Mazerat is full-bodied, with an abundance of floral notes as well as black currant and blackberry fruit. Impressively endowed and built like a skyscraper, this full-bodied wine needs a good 7-8 years of cellaring and should keep for 25-30 years. Interestingly, the vines were planted in 1947. 95+ (RP)
A very racy style, with bright raspberry, kirsch and mulled strawberry notes lined with lots of intense, chalky structure. Floral, bergamot and cherry pit notes enter on the finish, with the fruit slowly filling in at the end. When this pulls itself together, it will be a very minerally, stylish expression of St.-Emilion. Best from 2015 through 2030. 450 cases made.
