2016 Barton & Guestier Chateau Magnol, Haut-Medoc, France (750ml)
Deep and brilliant cherry red with violet highlights. Expressive, rich and complex nose mixing black berries (blackcurrant, black cherry) and well balanced spicy and minty notes. Harmonious, well balanced full, fine and elegant with ripe tannins. The aftertaste is rich and aromatic (fruity, spicy with a hint of vanilla and tobacco notes).
Blend: 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc
Perfect with red meat (especially lamb), duck breast and all fine cheese. Try with Pyrenees cheese, black cherry jam and walnut bread.
Classic dark plum, lead pencil and black fruit nose and palate. Deep, resonant and structured palate with ample fine-grained tannins, lots of power and a lingering complex finish. Anyone who loves Bordeaux will love this.
- Decanter, 95 pts.
Some very attractive and intense dark berries with cassis, together with a wealth of nicely arranged, spicy oak and subtle, earthy nuances. The palate has a well placed, red-fruit core with a smooth bed of fine, ripe and silky tannins. Poise and charm here. Try from 2022.
