2015 Château Marojallia Margaux Wine Tasting Note


2015 Château Marojallia  (Margaux) 91

Lush, round and full-bodied, the wine is concentrated and clearly has depth, but even with a few hours of decanting, the oak is fairly noticeable. I am not sure how well it is going to integrate, even with time.

Dark in color, the wine opens with espresso, wet earth, tobacco and blackberries. With a lush, forward character, there is a lot of round textured, sweet fruit found here with little effort. Richly textured, with silky tannins, give this a decade to develop.

When to Drink Chateau Marojallia, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Marojallia can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 2-3 hours, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Marojallia is usually better with at least 7-8 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Marojallia offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-25 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Marojallia, with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Marojallia is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Marojallia is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Marojallia is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.
