External Reviews for Chateau les Grand Marechaux
An absolutely outrageous sleeper of the vintage the tiny yields of 26 hectoliters per hectare produced wine made from a blend of 84% Merlot and the rest the two Cabernets. Natural alcohol is a whopping 14.5% and it will come as no surprise that Stephane Derenoncourt is the consultant. Deep plum/ruby with a big sweet kiss of mulberry black cherry jam licorice and incense this ripe fleshy medium to full-bodied wine has terrific fruit on the attack mid-palate and finish. This unctuous 2009 which often gets a recommendation from me is the best Les Grands Marechaux I have ever tasted. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Deep garnet with a bright ruby rim. On first whiff toasted oak and a flutter of fresh baked bread slide from the glass followed by olallieberry and black berry liquor nicoise olive tapenade and cigar box spice. A second swirl throws into the mix woody herbs cola strawberry compote and the undeniably bordelaise graphite. On the palate there is plenty of sweet fruit on the entry followed by cocoa nibs vanilla and toasty oak. Silky and supple tannins round out the mouth coaxing a meaty and somewhat mineral finish. Charity Anais.
