CHATEAU HAUT MARBUZET
SAINT ESTEPHE CRU BOURGEOIS EXCEPTIONNEL AOC
APPELLATION : SAINT ESTEPHE AOC
GRAPE VARIETY : 50% Merlot 40% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Cabernet Franc
GROUND : Gravels
AGEING: 18 Month in New Oak Barrels
TASTING NOTE: The wine is now typically a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The high percentage of Merlot accentuates the fleshy, supple side of the wine and this is further accentuated by harvesting as late as possible and by maturing the wine in 100% new oak barrels for 18 months. Henri Dubosq's wines are rich and voluptuous to drink young with plenty of concentrated fruit and chocolatey-vanilla aromas, yet also age beautifully.
