Tasting Notes and Scores

93-94

James Suckling

Lots of blackberry and walnut with some spice and grilled meat. It’s medium-bodied with firm, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Lovely ripe fruit in the center palate.

91-93

Jeff Leve

Soft, silky, fresh and lively, the wine is also on the savory side on the nose and palate. Lushly textured, medium-bodied, round, elegant and smoky, the wine finishes with tobacco leaf, and spicy red berries. The wine blends 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. If you can wait 3 years or so, this will really start showing well. Enjoy it for the next 12 years after that. 91-93

91-93

Jeb Dunnuck

Loads of tobacco, jalapeño, and red and blue fruits emerge from the 2020 Clos Marsalette. This beauty is medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a balanced, elegant texture, building, ripe tannins, and the wonderful purity and freshness that are the hallmarks of this vintage. Given its purity, balance, and solid underlying structure, it will benefit from 2-5 years of bottle age and have two decades of prime drinking.

Tasted by Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)

Soft grilled oak notes on the nose, this has the glamour of Clos Marsalette, beautifully expressed with a touch of bitter coffee on the finish that adds balance. Concentrated and intense, with 22hl/ha yield coming through in the depth of flavour, balanced by touches of eucalyptus and spice. 35% new oak. Tasted twice.
