Chateau les Grands Marechaux 2015

ONE GREAT VINTAGE. ONE SUPERSTAR WINEMAKER. IT'S LITTLE WONDER THIS MERLOT DOMINANT WINE FROM THE COTES-DE-BORDEAUX OVERPERFORMS FOR PRICE. 

"Initially firmly tannic, this opens to reveal fine blackberry fruit and fresh acidity. It's a generous wine, the wood aging giving tannins and spice while the delicious fruit offers a rounder, smoother side."Wine Enthusiast

"The 2015 Grands Marechaux is light on its feet, perfumed and gracious, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Lifted floral notes, spice, tobacco and red berry fruit are all nicely pushed forward. This is in a somewhat airy style for the year, but there is enough balance to support at least a few years in the cellar." Antonio Galloni

"Since purchasing Château Les Grands Maréchaux, the current owners have been blessed with a run of spectacular vintages, including the one that created this claret. It bestowed winemaker Stéphane Derenoncourt with perfectly ripe fruit on which to work his magic. Stéphane’s a legend in Bordeaux, having worked at many top Saint Emilion estates including La Mondotte, Canon La Gaffelière and Pavie Macquin. Such was the richness of the fruit in 2015, he matured the majority of the wine in new oak barrels, adding toasty layers of spicy complexity. A fine petit château claret from a celebrated vintage, Les Grands Maréchaux is tasty now, and will develop given time. Enjoy with a Sunday roast, venison casserole or fowl such as pheasant or partridge.

Rounded, dark fruit and figs; a hint of chocolate. Lush plum and raspberry aromas with notes of cedar."Chateau Les Grands Marechaux
