External Reviews for Château Marojallia Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux
The Origins of Garagiste Wine What exactly is Garage wine? The term refers to great wines made in very meager facilities. And it’s not the winemaking facility, but the commitment of the vintner that makes these wines so impressive. Jean-Luc Thunevin led the movement and by the 2000 vintage, there were at least 25 of these wines being made in Saint-Emilion. Now, they affect areas that were previously untouched, such as the Graves and the Médoc. Robert Parker said: "In 2001, this new garage operation from Margaux has produced a worthy rival to their stunning 2000. A saturated purple color is accompanied by aromas of paper white narcissus, creme de cassis, and roasted espresso. This long, concentrated, impressive 2001 is medium to full-bodied, with admirable purity, underlying freshness, and delineation. This is a tour de force. It admirably demonstrates what can be accomplished by extraordinarily talented and passionate people with a heretofore unexploited terroir. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018." 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, aged 18-24 months in new oak barrels, unfined and unfiltered. Only 500 cases produced.
