About Chateau Haut Marbuzet
Chateau Haut-Marbuzet wines are unusually accessible in their youth thanks to their ripe tannins and early sweetness, but they retain the concentration and structure to age. They can also be flamboyantly exotic, with sweet berry flavors, lavish new oak spiciness and a sensual, fleshy texture.

($45-$50; 13.4% alcohol) Good saturated red-ruby. Deep, ripe, expressive aromas of black raspberry, coffee, mocha, menthol, black olive and chocolate truffle. Sweet, seamless and lush, offering excellent volume in the mouth and considerable early sex appeal. This boasts the exotic character of Haut-Marbuzet in spades. Sweet, long, large-scaled wine with fine-grained tannins arriving very late.
