Château Marbuzet 2005 Red (Saint-Estèphe)
A delicious, smooth, ripe wine, almost lush with its opulent tannins and juicy raspberry fruits. There is just a core of firmness inside all this softness, but this remains an instantly attractive wine.
Château Marbuzet 2003 Red (Saint-Estèphe)
A perfumed wine, with delicate freshness as well as big, solid tannins. It’s full of fresh blackberry jelly flavors. At the end, the general impression is of a surprisingly delicate wine for the year. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates.
Château Marbuzet 2004 Red (Saint-Estèphe)
Formerly owned by the Prats family (who still manage Cos d’Estournel), Marbuzet normally makes impressive wine. Not so the 2004, which seems to have acquired a rustic, earthy character, leaving a bitter taste.
