... ripe and rich. This is a smoky and fruity wine, in barrel for 14 months. It has ripe black fruits and rich, dense structure. Spice and toast balance the fruit, giving an impressive sense of generosity.

90James Suckling

A wine displaying raspberries, violets, cacao and creamy notes. This is a full-bodied red with round tannins, crisp acidity and a long, fresh finish.

The nose evokes macerated red berries, dried tobacco, bell pepper and cedar. Medium on the palate, the fruit is drier (almost dusty) with earthy undertones Pair with: Chicken Cacciatore, Beef Stroganoff, and Chili Rellenos.


France, Bordeaux, Cotes De Francs

Côtes de Francs is the smallest of Bordeaux’s appellations and includes just three communes. Located six miles east of St.-Emilion, it is home to about 30 estates, each of which, on average, have vineyards of only about 15 acres. Côtes de Francs enjoys a terroir that is a clay plateau, much like its famous neighbor to the west, St.-Emilion. Although about 20 percent of the appellation is planted to the white wine grapes of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, the area’s strength is in red grapes, particularly Merlot. Côtes de Francs was officially recognized as an appellation in 1976, but in recent decades it has attracted innovative, often younger vignerons.


2012 Château Marsau

Winemaker's tasting notes: Deep, rich color. A nose of black fruit, menthol, evolving into mineral notes when aired (pencil lead, chalk.) An elegant palate, voluptuous, supple, silky tannins.
