Chateau Haut-Marbuzet is one of the best known "Cru Bourgeois" in Medoc. It is in the Saint Estèphe area. It is owned by the Henri Duboscq family and managed by the brothers Bruno and Hugues Duboscq.
The vineyards extend over 61 hectares. The grape varieties planted in the vineyard are cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc vines. The winery is on one side of a country road and the offices and tasting room on the other, built in a rather grandiose style.
The wine made at the winery is exclusively red, full-bodied and powerful. At harvest, the grapes that are brought in to the winery go through a manual selection on a sorting table to assure that only quality fruit go into the winery. Winemaking is classic: fermentation is big concrete vinification vats and aging in oak barrels. Much new oak is used.
