Chateau Magdelaine 2010
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Grape||Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux Blend|
Attractive and elegant, as it always is, with hints of sweet strawberries, crushed chalk, raspberries and cherries, the wine is medium-bodied, relatively rich for a Magdelaine, with an attractive, heady mouthfeel and more suppleness, glycerin and power than this wine – usually a finesse-styled St.-Emilion – normally possesses.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
Jam-packed, with mouthfilling notes of blackberry preserves, crushed blueberry, plum skin and anise, showing loads of singed wood spice and briar for a lively texture. Stays supergrippy through the finish and needs a little time to round into form, but the range is serious and the length very impressive.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
