Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright and perfumed aromas of plum, lilac and toast. Full-bodied, with layers of ultrafine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Cashmere. Beautiful."

My Notes:

About Ch√Ęteau Magdelaine:

This reputable Estate has a history that dates back to the mid-18th century. Jean-Pierre Moueix first acquired the property in 1952 and focused his efforts to restore the vineyard to its deserved glory. The property has recently undergone a major restoration of the buildings as well as an important renovation of the underground cellars.

The U-shaped vineyard is situated on the famous limestone terrace of Saint-Emilion as well as on a southern slope enjoying a sunny exposure. Cultivation and winemaking are under the supervision of the team of Establishments Jean-Pierre Moueix.
