Wine rated 91/100 by Olivier Poussier !


Pure Merlot, the 2016 Red Chateau Marsau Francs Côtes de Bordeaux, is a seductive, full-bodied, extremely appealing example of a Bordeaux wine that reveals itself today in a deep and very juicy style. The fresh, intense flavors of fruit and the present but smooth tannins form an ensemble that is both generous and subtle, which will pair beautifully with a duck breast or a fine entrecote. Rated 91/100 by Olivier Poussier.


Hand harvested, aged for 12 months in oak barrels, 30% of which are new.


Intense and brilliant ruby red.


Beautiful perfumes of black fruits and plum haloed by notes of graphite.


Rich and intense with juicy flavors of fruit, this wine has a very seductive profile and delivers a generous, intense structure with fine tannins.

Cellar aging:

At Ventealapropriété, we have always liked to introduce you to vintages that have reached their peak of maturity. (Re)discover today the "2016", one of the greatest vintages of the decade! 

At its inception, the 2016 vintage was already described as grandiose. A few years later, having reached a beautiful evolution, it displays a high class character, destined for long aging.

This vintage required patience and kept the suspense until the end before revealing its magnificence! A vintage of elegance and balance, with ripe tannins and fresh and dynamic textures.
