Chateau Marjosse 2007

15.0 / 20
Producer: Pierre Lurton
Region: Entre-Deux-Mers
Country: France

A blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, this french white from Entre-Deux-Mers, near Bordeaux, shows a light golden color, hinting at some evolution.

Discreet cooked apples in the nose, along with a glycerin feel lead the way to an unctuous, fat wine in the palate, with some sweet notes and only a dash of fruit. Balanced acidity keeps it alive throughout the taste that finishes long.

I think this is close to the end of its drinking window. I certainly felt that it could be a bit more lively and fresh. Right now, it is still a pleasurable drink but I don't think that will hold for much longer.
