Vinous – Neil Martin – 93-95/100
The 2022 Haut-Marbuzet has a detailed nose, perhaps less precocious
than I anticipated, focused with brambly red fruit, cedar and sous-bois
aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, a fleshy middle,
white pepper and clove toward a harmonious finish that gently fans out.
There is a pleasing peacock’s tail here – a very promising and classy SaintEstèphe. Tasted three times.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92-94/100
A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Haut-Marbuzet is a beautiful wine in the making, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, sweet wild berries, cassis, mint and pencil lead, intermingled with hints of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and supple thanks to its ripe and velvety tannins, this is a deep, concentrated and vibrant Saint-Estèphe that is likely to number among the more attractive propositions of the en primeur campaign.
