Description:

this exceptional vineyard covers 61 hectares and Hervé Duboscq is still at the helm, now assisted by his two sons Bruno and Hughes. The grape variety is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vast majority of the Château Haut-Marbuzet vineyard is carried by a ridge of gravel in the clay-limestone subsoil with the presence of iron. In the vineyards, one immediately notices the high density of plantation, about 9000 feet / ha on average. It should be noted here that a high density makes it possible, among other things, to have at equal yield fewer bunches per vine, hence better quality grapes. No chemical weed killers are used in vines that are plowed and scratched. What makes the personality of Haut-Marbuzet probably lies largely in the winemaking. The grapes are harvested very ripe (sometimes almost overripe) and then destemmed.  Macerations are long. Henri Duboscq remains attached to the traditional equipment and works a lot the diversification of the woods and the heaters to look for a real richness of the aromas.

At the tasting, this wine offers a real intensity and a striking richness. It can be kept in a cellar for years and will get even better after 5 to 10 years on some vintages
