Black cherries, flowers and a background note of fig pop in the nose easily. Light, but pretty fruit that is sweet and fresh, leaving you with black raspberries, dark chocolate and peppery cherries. You can enjoy this on release. Drink from 2024-2034.

Medium-bodied, forward, accessible, fresh and vibrant, the spicy red fruits at the core of this wine have lift and energy in the nose and in the palate, which finishes with chalky tannins and chocolate accents. This is the best vintage of Grand-Barrail-Lamarzelle I have ever tasted. Things are on the upswing here. Drink from 2023-2032.

With a roasted, dark, red plum character, the wine is medium-bodied, forward, accessible, soft and silky. The finish, with its hints of cocoa, licorice and dusty tannins is a perfect backdrop for all the ripe, sweet fruit. This is the best vintage of Grand-Barrail-Lamarzelle I have ever tasted. Things are on the upswing here. 90-92 Pts

Black cherries, figs and flowers come through perfectly in this medium-bodied, forward, fresh, juicy, earthy wine. Give it a few years to soften and develop more complexity and it should be even better.
