2019 Chateau Marsau, Cotes de Francs, France (750ml)
With infinite delicacy and charm, the 2019 vintage is imbuedwith freshness and light. The wines flit from fresh fruit to floralharmonies. A rich blend of perfume, revealing notes of Morellocherries, violets and spice. A lace so delicately gossamer-fine, it seems like silk. A subtle tableau, inspired by nature and reflecting the landscape. Airy and subterranean, the multiple nuances of clay, fragrances from above and below the soil. The wines are vivid and bright. The saline touch on the finish instills that oceanic feeling synonymous with being at one with nature.

The aromas of orange peel, citrus, fresh mushroom, bark, smoked meat and currants is fantastic. The palate is pure and focused with super-fine tannins and a long, long finish.
