Tasting Notes

A very balanced Marsau with lots of fresh acidity and bright fruit yet refined and subtle. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Hints of walnuts too. Linear and fine. Needs two or three years to soften.

Score: 92James Suckling,, January 2017

The 2014 Marsau has a lovely red cherry and raspberry-scented bouquet with neatly integrated creamy new oak that lends it a seductive allure. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, quite spicy with black pepper and cloves on the tip of the tongue, a whole packet of tobacco on the back palate. There is a touch of dryness here, but it does possess commendable focus. Give this two or three years in bottle.

Score: 87Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, March 2017

Chateau Marsau is a small estate situated in the satellite appellation of Cotes de Francs just a few miles east of St Emilion, purchased by the Chadronnier family in 1994. With well situated south-facing slopes, Marsau really delivers and offers excellent value.

 Farr Vintners, March 2015

This has a slightly rounded feel, with a pretty, plump core of plum and black cherry fruit, laced with a notable but well-integrated tobacco leaf edge. A light loam hint echoes at the end. Drink now through 2020. 3,335 cases made.
