This lovely vintage from Saint-Estèphe, located partly on the plateau of Marbuzet, has belonged to Henri Duboscq since 1981, owner of the famous Château Haut-Marbuzet. The surface of Tour de Marbuzet is barely five hectares, planted with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc. Made from very ripe harvested grapes, long macerations and prominent farms, the wines of Tour de Marbuzet are reminiscent of those of their prestigious cousin; they offer an incredible aromatic intensity: raspberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, spices and toasted notes, with the sap and the silky great wines of Saint-Estèphe. Only their soft price is surprising compared to the standards of the appellation.
