James Suckling 92-93
"Crazy cool nose of dark fruits with licorice and black pepper. Full bodied, with gorgeous fruits and silky refined tannins and a long, fruity finish. This is bright and beautiful. Best ever from here."
Robert Parker 91-93
"Owned by Stephan von Neipperg, Clos Marsalette is a relatively small 17.5-acre site situated next to Latour Martillac. Made from a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 exhibits an opaque ruby/purple hue along with copious notes of graphite, creosote, sweet berry fruit and subtle roasted herbs. Round and expansive on the palate with medium to full-bodied flavors, silky smooth tannins and extraordinary elegance as well as depth, this beauty is a major sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."
Wine Spectator 90-93
"Ebullient plum and blackberry fruit is pumped with lots of roasted spice and braised fig notes. This has a lashing of sweet toast on the finish, but the stuffing is there to soak it up."
