Tasting Notes

When to drink
Encourage cellaring for up to 5 years
On the nose
Les Grands Marechaux bursts out of the glass with notions of blueberry compote, blackberry preserves and crushed black plums plus suggestions of violets, tobacco and tilled soil.
On the palate
The palate is medium to full-bodied, the palate has a unique texture of very fine-grained tannins and bold freshness nicely framing the intense black fruit flavours, finishing on a perfumed note.
Product Notes
On the Right Bank of the Gironde, Blaye offers outstanding claret at affordable prices. This is thanks to a growing number of producers determined to match the standards of Saint Emilion and the Médoc. This is an exceptional vintage of Les Grands Maréchaux. A merlot based blend.
