Chateau Les Grands Marechaux vineyard is planted on clay, limestone and sandy soils. The average age of the vines is 17 years with a cepage of 84% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. Stephane Derenoncourt acts as winemaking consultant who is also employed by some of the top estates on the right bank.
– Robert Parker
Totally opaque black dark red colour with deep dark red hue. Lifted aromas of ripe blackcurrant merge with liquorice, earth, dusty cedar and spice showing very good intensity. The palate possesses plenty of richness with an abundance of ripe blackcurrant and plum flavours present followed by some earthiness, cedar and spice. Dryish finish with slightly chalky tannins but supportive to the fruit. Long ripe blackcurrant, earthy cedar and spice aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years (2013-2018)

An absolutely outrageous sleeper of the vintage, the tiny yields of 26 hectoliters per hectare produced wine made from a blend of 84% Merlot and the rest the two Cabernets. Natural alcohol is a whopping 14.5%, and it will come as no surprise that Stephane Derenoncourt is the consultant. Deep plum/ruby, with a big, sweet kiss of mulberry, black cherry jam, licorice and incense, this ripe, fleshy, medium to full-bodied wine has terrific fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish. This unctuous 2009, which often gets a recommendation from me, is the best Les Grands Marechaux I have ever tasted.
