Marsau 2018 Case of 3 Magnums (1.5Lx3)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Each cardboard case comes with 1 of each label.
Beautifully pure cherry berry black-olive and lightly toasted coffee-bean aromas follow through to a full body with a lovely center palate and purity of fruit. Lots of fine tannins. Balanced and poised. Wonderful depth. Tiny production – only 20% of the normal production. Pure merlot. From organically grown grapes. - James Suckling
2018 was a landmark year for Marsau as Mathieu and Anne-Laurence decided to take, that year, the path of organic agriculture, a resolute choice. As a consequence and because of a very wet spring, Mildew destroyed most part of the crop but, fortunately, not all of it. Even though the 2018 Marsau is in extremely short supply, vines produced a great and unique wine – an essential one which is a huge source of energy, brilliance, depth and sensuality.
Considering their grueling journey through this vintage, Mathieu and Anne-Laurence felt duty bound to mark the 2018 vintage with only the finest artwork. Three striking works in total, by Ronan Bouroullec who is one of the most famous and renowned French designer. In both fields (design and winemaking), there are shapes, materials, sense and senses. In both spheres, creativity. In both lifelong pursuits, the search for beauty. Through three selected works, Ronan Bouroullec shares his personal interpretation of our story and celebrates the three forms of life and energy that underscore so indelibly the creation of our wines:
The brown label : Clay soils, furrows, textures, depth and waves. Below.
The green label : Plants, vines, their mysteries, nuances, an abundance of different shapes, renewal and light. Above.
The red/pink label : Fruits, grapes, sweetness, sensuality, softness, fragrance. Inside.
