This is a winner! The texture, with its silky, plummy, concentrated, sweet fruits, blast of licorice and earth, with hints of cocoa and licorice is a pleasure to taste. Young, obviously, but this is going to get better with 5-8 years of age. 93 Points

2014 Château La Marzelle  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Showing better than it did during the April tastings, the wine is richer, fleshier and sweeter, with softer textures and additional complexities. With a high price to quality to ratio, this is a wine to keep track of as it continues to develop. 90-92 Pts

This is the best wine the property has ever made. Jean Luc Thunevin, who was recently brought in as the new consultant, has done an excellent turn for the estate. Revealing the deepest color ever for a La Marzelle wine, it is flush with licorice, plum, coffee bean, black cherries and fresh, forward, polished textures. The wine was made from a blend of 0% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. 88-90 Pts
