Vieux Chateau Mazerat 2018, St Emilion Grand Cru – Case of 6 x 75cl En Primeur
Vieux Château Mazerat is from the JCP Maltus portfolio of skillfully crafted Saint-Émilion wines. Neil White is the head winemaker, and Thomas Duclos is a consultant here. This vineyard is bordered by Château Canon on three sides and by Angélus on the fourth side. It includes a parcel of Cabernet Franc that was planted in 1947 on clay over limestone. A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Vieux Château Mazerat sashays out of the glass with beautiful notions of red roses, black raspberries, plum preserves and star anise with gentle, underlying wafts of redcurrant jelly, chocolate-covered cherries, menthol and espresso. Full-bodied, the palate delivers a rock-solid foundation of firm, grainy tannins and lovely freshness supporting the concentrated red and black fruit layers, finishing long and perfumed.
