Château Haut-Marbuzet

This wine is toasty and smoky with berried fruit and elegant spicy tones. A frame of round tannins supports the weighty berries on the palate. The farming is organic, grapes hand-harvested and fermentation occurs in concrete vats using only natural yeast. 100% new oak ageing for 18 months gives you that toasty and smoky character.

This iconic red can trace its Irish roots back to County Cork, where the McCarthy family moved when they left for Bordeaux as part of the Irish wine geese movement. This Irish family certainly left their mark on the French land, with the main road through the property still named 'Rue McCarthy'. So naturally, with its roots in the Rebel County, this wine doesn't pay much attention to convention - it is surprisingly Merlot dominant.

Henri Duboscq

Château Haut Marbuzet is now a classic at Wines Direct.
Our relationship with the Dubosq family goes back many
years. The property was purchased in 1952 by Hervé
Dubosq and is now managed by his son, Henri. Henri
Dubosq's wines are rich and voluptuous to drink young
with plenty of concentrated fruit and chocolatey-vanilla
aromas, yet also age beautifully.

Château Haut Marbuzet produces one of the most
pleasurable wines in the Médoc. It is classified as a Cru
Bourgeois, however, its wines regularly overshadow
those of its celebrity Grand Cru Classé neighbours. The
estate is 40 acres located about 2 kilometres north of Cos
d'Estournel in the tiny village of Marbuzet in St-Estéphe.
Its vineyards face the Gironde estuary, and vines are
planted on gravel-rich soil.

Chateau Haut-Marbuzet

Nestled between Châteaux Cos d'Estournel and Montrose, Château Haut-Marbuzet’s vineyard covers 61 hectares and is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Overlooking the Gironde estuary, most of the vineyards lie on the gravel of Marbuzet and the plateau of Long Treytin. Often described as exotic or opulent, Haut-Marbuzet wines develop a lushness that is unusual in the somewhat severe style of Saint-Estèphe. A second wine is produced from the vines under 12 years old, under the label Château MacCarthy, which bears the name of the Irish Jacobite family who created the vineyard.
