Chateau Magdelaine was acquired in 1952 and with meticulous care in the vineyard and a respectful vinification, the wine keeps its identity and expresses the unique terroir of the terrace of Saint-Emilion.
Wine Spectator (WS): 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.

Attractive nose with fresh leather, plums and orange peel at first. Opens up with raspberries and vanilla. Wonderful sumptuous fruit on the palate with a full body and good length. Smooth tannins and good complexity. Already very enjoyable.
