2015 Château Marzin Blayes - Côtes de Bordeaux
Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Note

Background
Located in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, Blaye is part of the Côtes de Bordeaux.
The 2015 vintage benefited from very good weather conditions throughout the year, from flowering until the harvest. Many winemakers said they had rarely seen such perfect tannins. The combination of thick skins and tannin ripeness meant that colour came out of the skins quickly - the resultant colours were deep, intense and purple. Despite Bordeaux's humid climate, the vintage had perfectly ripe and healthy grapes right up to the end of the vintage. The 2015 vintage is regarded as an outstanding vintage.

Made by Pierre and Sylvie Marzin, the 2015 Château Marzin was made from 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc were picked on October 1st; the Cabernet Sauvignon on October 7th. The wine was hand pressed, fermented in heat-regulated cement tanks and aged in French oak for 13 months prior to bottling. The wine was neither filtered nor fined.

Colour
Mid garnet-red.

Nose
Blackcurrant and red berries, with cedar and leather from development and oak.

Structure / Palate
Complex and medium bodied. Attractive red fruits, with even, dry tannins and good overall balance.

This stylish wine shows the complexity and flavours of a high-quality Bordeaux vintage. It is beginning to mellow with bottle age, yet will continue to develop until at least 2024.

Enjoyed with a Winter Roast. Drink until 2025.
