A dense, unctuous wine, the 2015 Marsau possesses notable richness in its red cherry jam, pomegranate and sweet spice flavors. This is an especially flamboyant, ripe style, but it works, and nicely. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Marsau is made by the "better half" of CVBG's Mathieu Chardronnier. It is 100% Merlot from 30-year-old vines planted on clay soil and matured in 30% new oak. It felt a little pinched on the nose at first, a little unresponsive, though with aeration I found a light marine influence tincturing the black fruit and it began to find a (prenatal) voice. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin. There is good weight here: furry textured tannin, but appreciable freshness and a sense of elegance on the finish. Give this 2-3 years in bottle and you will have a fine Francs - Côtes de Bordeaux on your hands. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2028

A very dense and rich Marsau with big tannin structure and ripe fruit. Full body, tar and blackberry character. Asphalt and graphite undertones. Fascinating you red. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Solid, with an almost gutsy edge, as plum and dark currant fruit is pushed by a slightly chewy, brambly feel, followed by notes of tobacco and licorice root on the finish. This has good character and depth. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

If Marsau were based in Pomerol, it would be twice as expensive - and twice as well known. This stylish pure Merlot from the Chadronnier family is textured, plush and aromatic, showing notes of plum, chocolate and coffee bean. It will age gracefully, too.
