The Wine

92 points JamesSuckling.com 'A juicy wine with blackberries and hints of black cherries and flowers. It’s medium-bodied with light tannins and roundness and softness at the end. Drink now or hold.'

90 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 'Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Les Grands Marechaux offers up vibrant notes of kirsch, black raspberries and blackberry preserves, with suggestions of sautéed herbs, tobacco leaf and dusty earth. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and soft-textured, with bags of juicy red and black fruits and an herbal lift on the finish. Drink 2021-2033.'

About the Wine Maker

The Chateau Les Grands Marechaux vineyard spans 19 hectares and is cultivated with 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The terrain consists of clay, limestone, and sandy soils, with vines averaging 17 years of age.

Etienne Barre and Christophe Reboul Salze acquired Chateau Les Grands Marechaux in the Cotes de Blaye appellation in 1997. This is not their sole vineyard in the area. 

They also possess Chateau Gigault, renowned for its Cuvee Viva. Their portfolio of Bordeaux value wine-producing properties expanded recently with the acquisition of Chateau Belle Coline. In addition to his role as a Bordeaux winemaker, Christophe Reboul is also recognized as a prominent Bordeaux wine merchant through his company, The Wine Merchant.


 

 

For wine production, the grapes undergo whole berry fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, followed by a 30-day maceration. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels.

Stephane Derenoncourt, renowned for his consultancy with various estates in Bordeaux's Right Bank, oversees the winemaking and vineyard management at Chateau Les Grands Marechaux.
