Deep garnet core moving to the rim. Pronounced notes of mocha, tobacco and bell pepper with intermingled red and black fruits come through on the nose. Classical Right-Bank fruit components show bright raspberry and red currants, along with darker fruit undertones. Tobacco, mocha and red pepper tantalize the palate with well integrated tannin. Pairings: Roasted quail, grilled pork, Pate de Campagna, Beef Wellington.


Château Marjosse

Château Marjosse is in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux, and it was established in 1990 by Pierre Lurton, managing director and winemaker at Cheval-Blanc and President and CEO of Château d'Yquem. He is also a much-in-demand consulting winemaker for LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton and others. Lurton started Château Marjosse with just 30 acres making classically-styled wine in a simple building that was more garage than château. After Lurton acquired nearly 90 more acres he built a modern winery, where he now makes 200,000 bottles annually of his flagship Chateau Marjosse red and 50,000 bottles of his white Entre-Deux-Mers.


France, Bordeaux, Entre-Deux-Mers

Entre-Deux-Mers is the appellation “between two seas,” as the name charmingly suggests. The “seas” are actually the two important Bordeaux rivers, the Dordogne and the Garonne. The appellation has nearly 7,500 acres, which makes it the largest appellation in Bordeaux. The Entre-Deux-Mers appellation only includes white wines made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. Though the fashion for these white wines once was to make them slightly sweet, today most are crisp and dry. Red wines sold in this region are labeled as Bordeaux AC or Bordeaux Supérior AC.
