Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark garnet color offers a fresh nose with minty, woody and smoky notes. On the palate, this wine is balanced and nervous with a finish on tannins that blend.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Appearing in the seventeenth century, the notion of "Cru Bourgeois" was given to the Bordeaux bourgeois productions of the time who owned the vineyards of the Medoc.
Domain and appellation
Located in the heart of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Haut-Marbuzet, classified Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, has been owned by Hervé Duboscq since 1952. In 1962, his son Henri joined him to help him attain the "Gloire Du Haut-Marbuzet". And thus the most beautiful father/son associations were born. Duboscq family also owns the chateaux Chambert-Marbuzet, Tour De Marbuzet and Mac Carthy, all three classified Crus Bourgeois of Saint-Estèphe.
- Terroir: The 50-hectare vineyard is located on a hilltop with gunzien gravel, with clay-limestone subsoil.
- Viticulture: Harvesting is done manually.
- Vinification: A long maceration in thermo-regulated vats, accompanied by daily stirring, followed by maturation of 18 months in oak barrels, which are new for each vintage. From these containers, the Château Haut-Marbuzet draws a fragrant creaminess that masks the traditional virility of Saint-Estèphe wines. Thus, a charmer from the time of bottling, with age, it attains the greatness that affords the genius of its terroir.
