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 manyyears. 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."
