I love the 2019 Clos Marsalette. This classic Graves offers loads of earthy dark currant fruits, tobacco, tapenade, and chocolatey goodness on the nose. It's just as good on the palate and is medium to full-bodied, with a fruit end-loaded, textured mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and a great finish. Along with the 2018, I suspect it's one of the finest vintages from this estate. ... More details

The 2019 Clos Marsalette has a deep garnet-purple color, revealing notes of crushed red and black currants, candied violets and pencil shavings on the nose, followed by hints of garrigue, tilled soil and crushed rocks. The medium-bodied palate is delicately played with loads of fragrant earth accents to the red and black fruit flavors, framed by grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing savory.

The 2019 Clos Marsalette is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Dark, rich and inviting, the 2019 possesses terrific depth and resonance that builds with a bit of time in the glass. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and licorice flesh out in this gorgeous, racy Pessac-Léognan. The 2019 is impeccable from start to finish.

Features the lush cassis, mulled plum and boysenberry compote profile of the vintage, along with a fresh mineral streak as well as juniper and savory hints that give it some distinction. Alluring but on the languid side, which is the theme for Pessac in 2019. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2033. 2,600 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries, graphite, iodine, wet earth, tar and black tea. Some green olives and dried herbs. It’s medium-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Balanced and fresh. Classically structured. Drink from 2025.

Rated 92 by Decanter
A consistently successful Neipperg wine in Pessac, bringing some of his signature glamour to the Left Bank. This is a big shouldered wine, feels fairly high in alcohol and not one that you are going to ignore. I wonder if this style does better on the limestones of St Emilion where there is greater natural acidity as a counterbalance, but no question that this has plenty of texture and swagger. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038.

Rated 92-94 - I love the 2019 Clos Marsalette. This classic Graves offers loads of earthy dark currant fruits, tobacco, tapenade, and chocolatey goodness on the nose. It's just as good on the palate and is medium to full-bodied, with a fruit end-loaded, textured mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and a great finish. Along with the 2018, I suspect it's one of the finest vintages from this estate. - Jeb Dunnuck

Varietal: Red Bordeaux

The Bordeaux method of blending quality grape varietals is something which has long been imitated and envied around the world. Whilst there are six Bordeaux grape varietals allowed for the production of red wine in this region of France – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Carménere – the most common and widely used combination involves a careful blend of the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, usually with a small percentage of Petit Verdot to boost the overall flavor and balance things out. This process accentuates the finer points of all these varietals, and takes the astringency of one type whilst rounding it out and mellowing it with the light tannins and fleshiness of another. The results are rarely short of spectacular, and are perfect for oak aging, where the flavorful magic of Bordeaux wine making can really take place, and the complex aromas and characteristics can truly come forward.

Region: Bordeaux

The wineries of Bordeaux in France are widely considered to be amongst the finest on earth, with many of the chateaux found on the Left Bank and in the Médoc region routinely demanding enormous prices and being snapped up by collectors looking to add the best examples of the world's white and red wines to their cellars. Bordeaux's secret to success comes from the fact that the terroir of the region is exceptionally rich in minerals, helped by the clay and gravel soils which typify the area and the Gironde river which runs through it. Normally humid in climate, the nearby Atlantic coast supplies cooling breezes, making Bordeaux a winemaker's dream and resulting in extremely high quality grape varietals. For hundreds of years, the wineries of Bordeaux have been mastering the art of wine blending, and today produce a wide range of wine styles using many of the sixteen grape varietals permitted to grow in the region by French law.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
