With espresso, cocoa, and cherries on the nose, the wine starts off great. Much better in the bottle, this is the best vintage of Les Grands Marechaux I recall tasting. There are loads of ripe, sweet, dark black cherries, licorice, a bit of chocolate on the nose, and a medium-bodied palate. It is hard to find a better value in an early drinking wine. Drink from 2023-2032.

Consistently one of the top Bordeaux value wines, this fully developed medium-bodied, fruity, cherry and licorice dominated, soft, round wine is great for an easy-going, uncomplicated quaffer.

2009 Les Grands Marechaux is 84% merlot, 9% cabernet franc, and 7% cabernet sauvignon. Net yields in 2009 were only 26 hls/ha. Medium bodied, with black raspberry and cherry scents, this easy drinking wine will be a crowd pleaser the day it’s released. Another top value play. 85-87 Pts

2005 Les Grands Marechaux opens with chocolate covered cherries and licorice. Medium bodied and soft in texture, this already mature wine finishes with cherry and licorice tints. One of the top value plays in Bordeaux today, this Stephane Derenoncourt consulted wine should be drunk up before the wine hits 8 years of age.

This is one of the steals of the vintage. Fresh dark berries, herbs and black cherry scents make up the perfume. Medium bodied and ready to drink, this soft textured wine ends with sweet dark cherries. Drink this young.
