Jane Anson (described by Decanter as “the world’s most informed and accomplished expert on the wines of Bordeaux”) rated Château de Claribés Marpeau 2017: 91 Points
“Juicy, with a sense of forward motion but also of restraint. Very nicely balanced, slightly chewy tannins balanced by acidity and dark fruits, ambitious but not trying too hard, this is good. Drink 2020-2034 Alc 14%”.
Marpeau is unusual for this part of Bordeaux as it has a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, around 80%. This makes for a fruit forward wine that has lots of structure and complexity.
As with all our wines from vintages after 2012, Marpeau 2017 is Vegan, Vegetarian and Certified Biologique by Ecocert.
