Classified as a cru bourgeouis, the Château Haut Marbuzet creates some of the most acclaimed wines from the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Located just 2km north of the illustrious Cos d’Estournel, Haut Marbuzet also benefits from excellent terroir, with vineyards that are planted on gravel, clay and limestone rich soils. The vineyards comprise Cabernet Sauvignon (c.50%), Merlot (c.40%), Petit Verdot (c.5%) and Cabernet Franc (c.5%). The high percentage of Merlot contributes to the wine’s fleshy, warm character, which has also been accentuated by its 100% new oak maturation. A voluptuous wine that has the ability to be drunk young, Château Haut Marbuzet is full to the brim with plump fruit, chocolatey-vanilla, and deep oak aromas. It also is able to develop well with age and is usually at its best around 10-20 years after the vintage.
