2020 Vieux Château Mazerat  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Spicy, fresh, vibrant and mineral driven, the wine shows off its ripe cherry, black raspberry, plum and floral elements with little effort. Medium/full-bodied, fresh, stony and with a combination of sweet red fruits and oak on the palate, this is going to take 6-8 years to come together. 92-94 Pts

2019 Vieux Château Mazerat  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 94

Take a pallet of crushed rocks and stone, add molten chocolate, and dark espresso bean and you get the perfume here. Full-bodied, crisp and fresh, with an energetic blast of fruits and more stone are found in the decidedly salty finish. It will take some time in the cellar before this is ready to show its stuff. 93-95 Pts

2018 Vieux Château Mazerat  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 96

Showing much better in bottle than it did while in barrel, the wine is dark in color. On the nose you find spicy aromas meshed with roasted dark plums, peppery herbs, flowers, rocks and stones. On the palate, the wine shows off its layers of lush, mineral driven, dark pit fruits, oyster shell, spice, espresso and cocoa on the mid-palate and in the long finish. This is going to get even better with 8 years or so of aging. The wine is a blend of 65% Merlot with 35% Cabernet Franc. 96 Points

Spicy roasted plums, caramel and espresso join forces with intensive minerality. The salty tannins add complexity and structure but before you can enjoy all the ripe, juicy red fruits, flowers, licorice and espresso, you are going to need to age this for at least a decade. The wine is a blend of 65% Merlot with 35% Cabernet Franc. 92-94 Pts
