Chateau Magdelaine (Futures Pre-Sale) 2011
A dark, dry wine that shows its strong, firm tannins. The wine is well structured, with flavors of mint, new wood and a layer of blackberry fruit.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points
Shows a darker profile, with boysenberry and linzer torte fruit, but stays supple, creamy and charming through the finish, with a floral lift at the end.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points
Deep ruby-red. Lovely freshness and purity to the strawberry and white pepper aromas. Then nicely dense, suave and smooth on the palate, with excellent depth to its red fruit and spice flavors. The complex finish displays a peppery persistence. A highly successful Magdelaine for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points
Pretty and balanced with delicious ripe fruit and fine tannins. Fresh acidity too. A nice density for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 91-92 Points
Fresh black cherry, licorice, kirsch and chalk-like notes are present in this medium-bodied, dark ruby-colored, classic effort. This mid-weight, lively 2011 is best drunk over the next 10-15 years.
Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points
