Château Marzy Pomerol 2018, north-west of Saint-Émilion. New vintage.
20% Cabernet Franc and 80% Merlot.
Amazing finesse, perfume lift, oaky creaminess, licorice, mintiness, complexity, flashes of the wild 2017 but more fruit in this new vintage (and more integrated oak), while the palate is full, very smooth, elegant, and long, laying down fine tannins with every sip, building to chewiness. The complete Pomerol package. Like a very big red Burgundy. Powerful yet very stylish and mesmerising to contemplate and appreciate.
