- 93 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: "The 2018 Cuvée Gros Bec is 100% Malbec from vines planted in 1949, not exactly the sort of thing you see every day, to say the least. Rich, ample and explosive, the Gros Bec is incredibly distinctive. Rose petal, lavender, gravel and exotic spice follow a core of inky red/purplish fruit. A whole range of savory and earthy notes develop with time. The Gros Bec is one of the most distinctive 2018s I tasted from Bordeaux this year. Production is a whopping 1,173 bottles, so I am not sure I will get a chance to see how it ages, but today it is a pretty special wine.
These new releases from Pierre Lurton’s Marjosse estate highlight the personality of single blocks on the property and signal a shift towards more ambitious wines. It’s a propitious start to be sure."
- 16,5 Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON, Julia Harding: "Another new and rare varietal wine from Pierre Lurton. Vines planted during the Second World War. Red clay, rich in iron, on limestone rock. Vinification in 500-litre barrels and ageing for 12 months in the same barrels. 1,173 bottles produced. Burgundy-shaped bottle.
Inky dark colour, almost black at the core with vibrant purple rim. Intense and rich aroma of violets, black fruits, seductively ripe and sweet oak. On the palate, this tastes almost a little bit too ripe and could do with a touch more freshness, though it has an attractive chewy authenticity about it that is hard to describe. There's something almost biscuity about it though without the sweetness. The polar opposite of the Ortolan Cabernet Franc. I am uncertain as to how this will age but the producer notes on the back label that it 'has the chops to tread the long road'. There's no lack of tannic richness but it does seem pretty ripe, mouth-filling in the extreme but gloriously aromatic to the finish."
- 93 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "Darkest in both colour and style of aromatics in this single variety range from Château Marjosse, this opens with smoke and tar notes, a gourmet edge of chocolate and cassis that should head towards truffles in a few years. Vinified in barrel, shows candied fruit as it opens, velvety tannins and pure blackberry. Cocoa bean and violet floral notes on the finish, huge character. The Malbec vines here date back to the 1940s. 3.6pH. Great stuff. Drinking Window 2021 – 2024"

|Notizen des Weinguts:||With a robust silhouette with bluish reflections, our Malbec was planted during World War II and is harvested by hand. A grape variety that has stood the test of time, where it has not came out unscathed in the Bordeaux region, and we want to reappropriate it to unfold all its nuances. Gros Bec offers a powerful nose of flowers, black fruits and toasted notes. A wine made for long flights. Tasting notes : ?The Gros Bec 2018 does not go unnoticed, it has a deep purplish black color, under which is revealed a powerful, complex nose of vanilla and very ripe black fruits. The palate is opulent, fleshy, spherical, with a finish of black fruits and licorice. Blend : 100 % Malbec Appellation : Vin de France Age of the vines : 75 years old Number of bottles : 1,200 Soil type : Red clay, rich in iron, on limestone rock. Pruning system : double guyot Yield : 25 hl/ha Aging : vinification in 500-litre barrels and aging for 12 months in the same barrels.|
