Other Reviews....
The 2020 Haut-Marbuzet has a more attractive bouquet than the previous two vintage, featuring perfumed black currant, wild hedgerow, blueberry and a touch of India ink – the kind of aromatics that I associate with this property. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Very pure and velvety-smooth toward the finish. This is the best wine I have tasted from Haut-Marbuzet in several years.

An excellent Haut-Marbuzet with blackberry and currant character, but more importantly a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins that are polished and gorgeous. It’s all here now, ready for wonderful development in barrel.

James Suckling

A little gem of a wine, the 2020 Château Haut-Marbuzet boasts a deep purple color as well as medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of cassis, blackcurrants, tobacco, and damp earth. It’s ripe, rounded, and pure on the palate, with wonderful precision and freshness as well as silky tannins. It’s worth seeking out.

Dark in color, the wine offers notes of coffee bean, cherries, smoke, spice and peppery herbs. Medium/full-bodied, with a strong oak presence that accompanies the round textures and all the herbs, spices and fruits. The wine ends with a savory character on top of the espresso tinged finish. The oak is still quite present, so give it time to come around. If it integrates, this will be a better wine.
