BORDEAUX 2 BOTTLE GIFT PACK Chateau Marsau & Chateau Martinon

CHATEAU MARSAU 2010 COTES DE BORDEAUX FRANCS
A few kilometers to the east of Saint-Emilion, close to the historic village of Francs, neighboring the home of Montaigne, the vineyard of Château Marsau lies on one of the highest points of the Francs Côtes de Bordeaux appellation.

There, nestled in a few hectares of greenery, on gentle south-facing slopes, Marsau’s vines push their roots through layers of clay, assuring perfect water supply in any type of weather.

The expression of our terroir begins with the work done in the vineyard. At Marsau, the vineyard’s modest surface allows for an unparalleled attention to detail during the vegetative cycle of the vine, adapted to each individual plant: rigorous pruning and thinning, the pursuit of an optimal leaf surface exposure, early leaf-thinning and green harvests, eliminating late grapes at the end of veraison, then harvests programmed according to the desired level of ripeness in each plot.

Winemaking techniques are adapted to the specific nature of each vintage and of each plot of land. Our aim is to take advantage of each grape’s natural concentration and to faithfully extract the personality of the terroir and the variety. Ageing in French oak barrels is done in separate lots, in order to preserve the identity of each individual cuvée. The final blend is made at the end of this 12-month ageing period. Bringing into being Marsau, and its second wine Prélude.

100% Merlot - Very elegant nose, refined. Red fruits, incense, cedar. The palate starts with sweet red fruits, cherries and berries, that are moderated with big tannins surging forward, easing back as darker plum and cassis extractions slowly saturate the palate, finishing with touches of earth. Looking for a big Merlot that will shut your naysayer “Sideways” friends up? This is it. C'est finis!
