Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 85

Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s annual 10-Year On tasting in London. I was not particularly enamoured by the 2006 Château Magdelaine from barrel, so after ten years, the question remains…was I too mean? Maybe. That said, I find the aromatics here more diffuse than the 2006 Canon-la-Gaffelière, missing Magdelaine’s usual cohesion and finesse. The palate is stocky, brittle in the mouth with dry tannin, tarry red berry fruit, a dash of white pepper with quite an austere finish. While I accept that I may have been harsh in barrel all those years ago, fact is, there are far superior wines from this “discontinued” estate out there. Tasted January 2016.

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2020

JancisRobinson.com – 16.5

Ah Magdelaine! A relic… Blackish ruby. Light, interesting, rather vegy, fragrant nose. Appetising. Mouth-filling with great succulent structure and there is more fruit here in the battle with the tannins than most. Rather charming. Attractive liveliness. [27/01/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2032

Vinous – 88-90

Ruby-red. Very dark aromas of medicinal black cherry and licorice. Supple and moderately sweet but a bit youthfully bound-up. Flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and licorice are currently shortened by the wine’s building tannins. Does it have enough mid-palate stuffing? [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2007]
