Chateau les Grands Marechaux 2002 (review)

84+ points

Cotes de Blaye, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Stylish but a bit thin. Nice touch of tannin on the finish.

I first tried this wine as the 2000 vintage, it was an impressive bargain, intense with whiffs of almond marzipan even on the nose. This is not in the same league. It is different but will probably fatten with a little age. While I doubt this is for long keeping, it is early days for this wine. Premature to judge it now, give it a year or two.
