The Winery

Château Haut Marbuzet

Château Haut Marbuzet

The origins of Haut-Marbuzet lie in the 18th Century, when much of the land around the hamlet of Marbuzet in the commune of St Estèphe was in the ownership of two families. The first is a familiar name, it being none other than the nobleman Alexandre de Ségur, who held sway here until his death in 1776, when his lands were divided and sold. This estate was acquired by Marc-Antoine Domenger, who was régisseur at Latour, and these vineyards subsequently gave rise to Chateau Le Crock, now owned by the Cuvelier family of Léoville-Poyferré, and Chateau de Marbuzet. The other name, not so familiar, is Sylvester Fatin, who bequeathed his lands to his daughters in 1770. In 1825, however, these vineyards came to the MacCarthys, a family of Irish immigrants that included amongst their number wine merchants and the chairman of the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce. It was the MacCarthy estate that would give rise to Haut-Marbuzet, but not until the middle of the 19th Century. The new Napoleonic laws decreed that estates must be divided upon their inheritance, and so it was that in 1854 the MacCarthy vineyard was partitioned into 17 separate parcels. It was one of these parcels that would become the Haut-Marbuzet of today.

4 /5

The best pairing would have been fish. I opened this wine with my best friend.
Cherry blossom colour, nearly opaque. Cedarwood aromas. The 2016 tastes a little bit oily in the mouth.
