Located in Martillac, in the Pessac-Léognan appellation, Clos Marsalette is jointly owned by Count Stephan von Neipperg and Didier Miqueu.

This vineyard sits magnificently on gravelly rises deposited aeons ago by the Garonne. Offering a great diversity the subsoil is composed of marine sediment from the Miocene and Pliocene epochs (5 to 15 million years ago) in the form of shelly sand with a bit of clay, fawn-coloured sand, and multi-coloured clay.

Clos Marsalette’s vineyard which covers an area of 12,30 hectares (for the red wine) plus 1,30 hectares (for the white wine) is also looked after expertly in order to produce a wine reflecting the typicity of this Terroir.

Taste:  The nose is fruity, incisif, relatively powerful and a bit gourmand. It reveals notes of cassis, mineral / flint and small notes of spice, blackberry combined with a hint of plum, red fruit, oak and a discreet touch of tea. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy, relatively gourmand, fat and offers juiciness, density and a silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis and blackberry combined with a touch of plum, cocoa / mocha, slight notes of red fruits, a hint of cherry as well as very slight notes of liquorice and a fine note of candy. Tannins are fine, grainy and well-built
