The 2015 Haut-Marbuzet is a wine of great classicism. Indeed, it was created during a vintage which perfection is almost similar the 2010 vintage. The 2015 Haut-Marbuzet has a purple-tinted inky red colour is a good indicator of this wine texture. The nose does not give off a lot of aromas before swirling, the wine density is ever-present. Yet, the swirling reveals the aromatic breadth of this Saint-Estephe. A large palette of black fruits prevails with a balsamic hint. The palate is solid, carefully structured on broad and quality tannins. This red wine carries good freshness and strength, and has a great ageing potential. The 2015 Château Haut Marbuzet has a blend of 40% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, plus 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
