Château Prieuré Marquet, Bordeaux Supérior, Bordeaux, France, 2007
From a dynamic and forward-thinking estate, Château Prieuré Marquet, which has belonged for several years to the Despujol family, is one of the critics' favorite Bordeaux Superior. The vineyard is planted on the best argilo-limestone and faces directly south, allowing Frederic Despujol to create a wine of resilience and
60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has a deep nose dominated by earthen fruit notes. A full and fleshy mouthfeel is complimented
by meaty and masculine flavors, with a four-square structure and plenty of longevity.
