Description

Château Martet Reserve De La Famille 2017

Château Martet Reserve De La Famille is a true benchmark for great Bordeaux wine. Purplish red colour. This top-of-the-range wine opens with a blackberry, prune and truffle nose. Sensually smooth and supple on the palate with velvety tannins and dominant black fruit flavours. A wine that offers pleasure and finesse.

 

100% Merlot. The fruit comes from 33 ha, including 17 ha intended for the Family Reserve, of vineyards in the Sainte-Foy Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. The vines grow in gravel iron clay limestone and clay limestone soils. The vineyards are tended to with organic fertilisers and reasoned soil tillage. 

The wine ages for 18 months in new barrels from Radoux Blend.

Ageing potential: Drink between 2022–2034.

 

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

- 93 POINTS

"Inky dark core and hue. Expressive nose offering roasted notes, mocha, new oak and plenty of exuberant dark fruit. The palate is dense and powerful with fine and grainy tannin, well-integrated oak, savoury and digest dark fruit with a spicy complexity and a long powerful finish."
