Description :

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 wine with fine-grained tannins

Château Haut-Marbuzet

Château Haut-Marbuzet Grand Cru Classé Saint-Estèphe  

The vineyard Haut-Marbuzet covers 61 hectares and is planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, a significant area of Merlot which accounts for 40%, and Cabernet Franc making up the total with 10%. This amount of Merlot is a little unusual for the commune, although there are a number of Cru Bourgeois estates on the Médoc that have a similar predominance of the variety in the vineyard, and in fact the area dedicated to this variety at Haut-Marbuzet has been reduced from the time of Hervé, when it dominated even more clearly.

The vines are planted at a density of 9000 vines/ha and have an average age of 30 years, and the Duboscqs favour ploughing over herbicides. Once harvested the fruit is destemmed before fermentation in concrete tanks with temperature control, followed by a four week maceration with daily pumping over.

The wine then goes into oak, the choice depending very much on the vintage; Allier and Tronçais give the complexity that has been favoured by Henri for the better vintages, but in less convincing years wood from Nievre would be the norm. The wines stay in barrel for up to 18 months before fining and bottling.

The grand vin is Chateau Haut-Marbuzet, the second wine Chateau MacCarthy, and the Duboscq trio also bottle the wines of the other estates accrued by the family over the years as Chateau Chambert-Marbuzet and Tour de Marbuzet.

Read the works of a number of commentators on Bordeaux and it soon becomes clear that some hold Haut-Marbuzet, as shaped by Hervé Duboscq, in the highest regard, with Clive Coates once ranking it third in the commune behind only Montrose and Chateau Cos d’Estournel.

Notes de dégustation

Wine Spectator : 91 points
"Shows intense aromas of blackberry, currant and spices. Full and rich, with a slightly earthy and funky undertone, but I like the decadence and richness. The tannins are polished. Best after 2013." (Mars 2008)

Stephen Tanzer : 92 points
"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." (Juin 2008)

Bettane et Desseauve : 17/20
"Saint-Estèphe très classique au nez, plein et onctueux, long, complexe, tannin savoureux, expression assez immédiate et convaincante d’un très beau millésime." (2009)

Robert Parker : 89-91 points
"The exciting, oaky, in-your-face 2005 Haut-Marbuzet possesses a deep ruby/plum color, a sweet perfume of coffee, roasted herbs, black cherries, currants, and spice, a fleshy, medium to full-bodied style, sweet tannin, and good length. It should drink beautifully for 10-12+ years." (Avril 2007)

Quarin : 89 points
"Couleur rouge sombre, noire, pourpre, intense et belle. Le nez est intense, fin, fruité, très différent de ses pairs. Le fruit paraît plus intense, la note aromatique un tantinet plus boisée. Quasiment parfumé. Merveilleuse suavité dès l’entrée en bouche se développant de la même manière au milieu jusqu’en finale. Vin très aromatique et hyper charmeur. Toutefois j’espérais un peu plus de trame et de profondeur dans le goût. Bonne longueur."
