Château De Marsan 2015 was awarded Gold in the 2018 Concours General Agricole. This is a terrific value Bordeaux from the Côtes De Bordeaux Cadillac wine region and a juicy red blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc sourced from vines 15 years of age. Supple with bright raspberry, red plum and blackberry fruit flavours on the palate with a kiss of white pepper finish. Terrific value.

Food pairings: lamburgers, gourmet hamburgers, roasted root vegetables.

Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From Cadillac-Côtes de Bordeaux region, sandwiched between Entre Deux Meres and Graves, come the Chateau de Marsan 2015. This beautiful wine shows classic aromas of black cherry, dark skin plum, tobacco leaf, leather, dark chocolate, backing spice and oak. Made from 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied wine reveals a long finish, great balance and vibrant roundness. This Bordelais offers tastes of blackberry, plum, pepper, graphite, cocoa, allspice and cedar. Great wine for any occasion. Enjoy!
Château De Marsan 2015 is a terrific value Bordeaux from the Côtes De Bordeaux Cadillac wine region owned by Les Vignobles Gonfrier. Dry and juicy red blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc with grapes grown on sloping clay-gravel soils and on an alluvial plain. Grape vines are an average of 15 years of age and the wine was aged in oak barrel for one year. On the palate the wine is very supple with bright and ripe raspberry, blackberry, red plums and white pepper flavours on the palate. Tannins are fine, grippy and there is good acidity for food. Decant for one hour and pair with roast pheasant. This vintage was awarded Gold in the 2018 Concours General Agricole. - Community Wine Reviews
