    “Beautifully pure cherry, berry, black-olive and lightly toasted coffee-bean aromas follow through to a full body with a lovely center palate and purity of fruit. Lots of fine tannins. Balanced and poised. Wonderful depth. Tiny production – only 20% of the normal production. Pure merlot. From organically grown grapes. Needs two or three years to come around. Try after 2022.” – James Suckling

    “Owned by Mathieu and Anne-Laurence Chardronnier in a corner of Francs Côtes de Bordeaux that has more clay than is typical in the appellation, this is full of perfumed spice and ripe blue fruits, deftly delivered and totally moreish. This was the first year in organic conversion for Marsau, and the mildew of the year was particularly tough, meaning that yields were low (really low, less than 10hl/ha). Despite the difficulties, they have created something delicious, fermented with native yeasts and no added sulphur. Beautiful label also, from designer Ronan Bouroullec. Drinking Window 2021 – 2025.” – Jane Anson
