2014 Marojallia



This “full-throttle Margaux” was rescored at 94 points when re-tasted by Antonio Galloni in early 2017.  This is an incredible rating in light of the price and the fact that, for a red Margaux, it was only fractionally bettered in this vintage by the considerably more expensive Château Margaux and Rauzan-Ségla with 94+ points and Palmer with 95+ points.

 

On trying this vintage in April 2015 Galloni said: “Marojallia is one of the best Margaux wines made in this style. Today, it is simply dazzling.” On revisiting it two years on he says it offers “pure pleasure”.

 

For those not familiar with the four hectare Marojallia, this microcuvée was described as “Médoc's first ‘garage wine’” by Jancis Robinson and is an estate going from strength to strength. It takes its name from the Roman name for the Margaux region and, as Jeff Leve of The Wine Cellar Insider says, “it is often difficult to find”, so this is a rare opportunity...

The 2014 Marojallia is ripe, flashy and voluptuous, just as it was from barrel. Juicy red cherry and plum fruit, kirsch, espresso, spice and new French oak all meld together in an opulent, flamboyant wine that offers considerable immediacy and pure pleasure. The 2014 appears to have shut down a bit post-bottling, but it has plenty of richness and intensity. Readers should expect an unctuous, viscous, full-throttle Margaux. Tasted two times.

Caressing lilac, plum and anise notes are backed by extra blackberry and black currant fruit. The finish picks up a fruitcake hint. A solid, flashy style.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.
