About the Wine 

Chateau Marojallia was the first small boutique property in the Medoc. Created in 1998 by owner Philippe Porcheron with winemaking team Muriel Andraud and Jean-Luc Thunevin. World-renowned consultant, Michel Rolland, joined the winemaking team in 2001.

Chateau Marojallia (Latin for Margaux) is a rare, small production chateau. The Grand Vin and second label are both made from only 4 hectares of 25-year-old vines with painstaking care and in such small quantities, all the production equipment can easily fit in a garage.

The Grand Vin retails for over $70 a bottle and BHW is excited to be able to offer the second label at half the cost while still showing the exceptional quality expected from the Margaux appellation.

Upon the first vintage release in 1999 Chateau Marojallia was immediately hailed by critics and Robert Parker ranked them among the very finest wines from Margaux. Close to Chateau Margaux and Chateau Rauzan Segla not far from the village of Margaux. 2015 garnered a 94 point rating from Wine Advocate.

Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 50% Merlot.  Aromas of spiced plum, blueberry, and blackcurrant. impeccably balanced with juicy tannins and a gorgeous texture.

Reviews

Aromas of blackcurrants and spices with blueberry undertones. Full body and round and juicy tannins. Layered and very pretty. Gorgeous texture. Needs two or three years to come around. A beauty. ~93 James Suckling

A magnificent second wine, the 2015 Clos Margalaine is yet another example of how strong the vintage is in Margaux. Today, the Clos Margalaine is open-knit, powerful, and totally seductive. A rush of dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol, and licorice builds to the sumptuous, racy finish. Even with all of its obvious intensity and large-scaled voluptuousness, the 2015 remains impeccably balanced and vivid throughout. What a gorgeous wine this is. Clos Margalaine is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot aged in about a third new oak. Christophe Coupez and Michel Rolland consult. ~90-93 Vinous

Run by Philippe Porcheron, who purchased this estate in 1999, Clos Margalaine consists of four hectares of deep, gravelly soils located between the estates of Le Tertre and Monbrison, and they receive consulting advice from Christophe Coupez and Michel Rolland. The 2015 Clos Margalaine is another beautiful Margaux and is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It boasts medium-bodied, elegant, perfumed notes of black raspberries (maybe even some strawberry), spring flowers, toasted spices, and forest floor. About as fine and elegant as they come, yet with plenty of balance and length, it’s a gem from one of the top appellations in 2015. It will keep for 10-15 years. ~91 Jeb Dunnuck
