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 team in 2001.
Chateau Marojallia (Latin for Margaux) is a rare, small production chateau. The Grand Vin and second label is made from only 4 hectares of 25-year-old vines with painstaking care and in such small quantities, all the production equipment could easily fit in a garage. Often hard to find, BHW is thrilled to share this small allocation with you.
Jeb Dunnuck advises, "Margaux savvy readers should snatch up the 2015 Château Marojallia."
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.
Aging: 18 to 24 months in 100% new French Oak

Best ever from here with blueberry, boysenberry and walnut aromas and flavors. Full body. Very velvety textured. Long, long finish. ~93-94 James Suckling'
Another top-notch Margaux savvy readers should snatch up the 2015 Château Marojallia. Which comes from a tiny estate owned by Philippe Porcheron, with the wine made by Muriel Andraud and Jean-Luc Thunevin, with consulting advice from Michel Rolland. From a 70/30 split of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot harvest between September 30th and October 12th, this beauty boasts a thrilling, medium to full-bodied, concentrated personality as well as classic notes of blackcurrants, smoke tobacco, graphite, and flowers. It has the ripe, sexy fruit quality that was easy to get in the vintage, yet also has a stacked mid-palate, notable structure, and terrific purity of fruit. If I had multiple bottles, I’d probably drink one today, yet it should benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for two decades or more. ~93+ Jeb Dunnuck
Lush and warm, with captivating blackberry, boysenberry and raspberry compote flavors gliding over a polished structure. Bright violet and lilac notes flash through the finish, which is scored with anise and toasted apple wood details. A beautiful display of fruit. Best from 2020 through 2030. ~93 Wine Spectator
