2017 Château Marsau, Côtes des Francs

Quite ripe and concentrated, with a clear tannic structure. There's a sweetness to the fruit, with nice fleshiness and juicy purity.

TASTING NOTES

A very pretty and solid red with dark berries, chocolate and hints of spice. Lovely richness and intensity. Medium to full body and chewy tannins. Great length and drive at the end for this appellation and the vintage.
