Château Marsau Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Francs 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

We are delighted to offer this beautiful wine again En Primeur. We are not surewe agree with Mr Parker on his comparison to the most expensive wine inBordeaux however it is delicious! The 2000 and 2001 are both drinkingbeautifully at the moment and we are sure the 2005 is even better.<br/><br/>Made predominantly from Merlot, the pure ripe tannins in this wine provide alovely backbone to the ripe blackcurrant and cherry fruit. This region could beone of the next big things in Bordeaux so pick up a case or two to stay aheadof the game. Early drinking too, 2008-2015.

berries up front with annise& rose and strong raisin vanilla with a light, balanced tannins. I love it! Had with saffron spaghetti, which actually overpowered it. Should of had something spicy and bolder with this dish. This was refined.
