I continue to love the Vieux Château Mazerat from Maltus, and the 2019 is another beautiful wine in the making, with beautiful ripeness in its blackcurrants, roasted herbs, chocolate, unsmoked tobacco, and damp earth-like aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, and gorgeous on the palate, it has an incredibly seamless texture paired with plenty of opulence and texture as well as minerality on the finish. It's a gem of a wine. - Jeb Dunnick

Quite different in feel and weight than the others in the Maltus range, this is a little fresher, with higher Cabernet Franc that gives it a sense of reserve. Iris notes curling around the dark fruit, and a tannic frame that demands a good few years in bottle. As it unrolls in the glass glass you see the complexity and tight blueberry and blackberry fruits. 3.76pH. 80% new oak. - Jane Anson, Decanter

Intense aromas of fresh mushrooms and dark fruit. Some pine needles and black fruit, too. Hint of smoky wood. It’s full-bodied and chewy, yet polished. Long finish. - James Suckling

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Vieux Château Mazerat delivers pronounced, purely expressed notes of ripe black plums, black raspberries and boysenberries with suggestions of cedar, chocolate box, camphor and pencil lead plus a touch of cumin seed. The medium to full-bodied palate has a sturdy frame of grainy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the black fruit layers, finishing long and mineral laced. Vieux Château Mazerat is from the JCP Maltus portfolio of skillfully crafted Saint-Émilion wines. Neil White is the head winemaker, and Thomas Duclos is a consultant here. This vineyard is bordered by Château Canon on three sides and by Angélus on the fourth side. It includes a parcel of Cabernet Franc that was planted in 1947 on clay over limestone. - Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate

The 2019 Vieux Château Mazerat, from the Jonathan Maltus stable, offers baked cherries, fresh dates and melted tar on the nose that suggests just a little sur-maturité compared to recent vintages. The palate is actually better than the nose with lithe tannins and nicely detailed brambly red fruit intermixed with white pepper and sage. The finish shows the elegance that I come to expect from this cru. Despite the aromatics revealing too much exuberance, I will give this the benefit of the doubt. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
