A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc from vines in clay over limestone planted in 1947, this wine exhibits loads of chalky minerality and a stunning nose of espresso, blackberry, mulberry and kirsch. Elegant, with superb definition and a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, this effort has put on considerable weight since I tasted it from barrel. Unfortunately, the production is under 1,500 cases. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2032. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

With the Merlot picked on 11th October and Cabernet Franc on 15th October, a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the Vieux Chateau Mazerat has a lifted ripe, well defined nose of macerated black cherries, violets, raspberry and a touch of chalk. The palate is full-bodied with a smooth, quite voluptuous entry, firm grip and tannic structure but well balanced. Dense and with weight towards the finish that displays a lot of new oak at the moment. Tasted March 2010

Aromas of blackberries and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium-to-full body, with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Well-made. Try after 2015. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
