"Already shows a lot of minerality, with a strong pebbly undertow to the blackberry, currant and crushed fig notes. Juicy acidity is buried deeply, with cocoa-dusted flesh covering the finish. " (WS)

"Made by Murielle Thunevin (the wife of Jean-Luc Thunevin), the 2010 Marojallia is a study in elegance combined with power and richness. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet perfume of blueberries, black raspberries, violets, charcoal and graphite. Full-bodied, beautifully measured and restrained, in spite of its intense flavor profile, with well-integrated tannins and acidity, it should drink well for 15+ years." (WA)

"Dark, opaque ruby. Very ripe aromas of black fruits, cocoa, mint and dried herbs. Supple on entry, then shows a strong bitter coffee and herbal character that suggests a wide range of fruit ripeness. This big, structured wine finishes with mounting, palate-coating tannins and a lingering cassis note. Seems rather heavily extracted but has plenty of fruit. Currently a bit chunky and monolithic, this wine will need time in the cellar to develop more complexity. Those who prefer big, seriously tannic Bordeaux may score this higher than I did. (I should note that one of my samples was astringent and tough.) " (IWC)

"Marojaillia Deep dark ruby color, oak, black raspberry and licorice scents are followed by a dense, round, sweet, licorice, chocolate and boysenberry filled palate. This is a rich, opulent textured wine of pleasure. 92-94 Pts" (JL)
