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.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040
