James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, March 2013
A delicious wine with blueberry, milk chocolate and follow through to a full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a clean finish. The personal winery of Cheval Blanc's Pierre Lurton. Drink or hold.

Deep ruby. Fruit-driven aromas of blackcurrant smoky plum and dried herbs. Juicy spicy and firm but with good fleshiness to the black fruit flavors complicated by floral herbal and tobacco notes. The persistent finish... Deep ruby. Fruit-driven aromas of blackcurrant smoky plum and dried herbs. Juicy spicy and firm but with good fleshiness to the black fruit flavors complicated by floral herbal and tobacco notes. The persistent finish features good grip and flavor authority and remarkably silky tannins. The best Marjosse ever.

Great strides have been made at this property under the watchful eye of Pierre Lurton (of Cheval Blanc fame). The aromatics showcase violet and crushed berry. Forward and inviting on the entry cassis mingles with black licorice and sweet tobacco on the back end. The generous mouth feel wraps up with balance and fleshiness. Great value! Enjoy on release and over the following 5 years.

The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2010 exhibits abundant notes of mulberries and black cherries intertwined with subtle herb earth and oak characteristics. Drink it during its first 2-3 years of life as this cuvee rarely ages.

Very much more ambitious than any AC Bordeaux I have tasted so far with almost an overripe note. Thick and sweet. This should be very rewarding for those who seek an example of the modern right-bank style without one hopes the price tag.

Succulent with plum blackberry and licorice notes. This has a solid dose of toast but should absorb that. -J.M.
