Château de Lamarque is a beautiful Haut-Médoc estate of 35 hectares of vines planted on a rich terroir. The estate produces wines of excellence, characterized by finesse and elegance.
Chateau De Lamarque 2012 seduces us with a medium intense ruby-red colour. Fresh nose there, displaying rather red fruity notes, herbs, slight hint of leather and quite discreet oak. Palate is still youthful; still a bit tight with pronounced tannin and quite high acidity. Fruitiness is more, once again, on the red fruity side; with hints of red currant, some herbal spiciness, such as bay leaf. Quite classical style I would say, quite classically structured, with a style built for long aging, with a juicy red fruit, quite discreet oak and a rather long finish.
Food & Wine Pairing : Serve with stuffed quail, grilled steak or traditional french meal. Serving condition : Between 16°C and 18°C. Preservation : Up to 12 years reflecting the above notes. After this period the wine will show more mature characteristics.
