Chateau Magdelaine

chateau magdelaine saint-emilion grand cru 1995 3l (jeroboam)


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 undergone a major restoration of the buildings as well as an important renovation of the underground cellars. The U-shaped vineyard, comprised of 28 acres in a single parcel, is an average age of 35 years. It is situated on the famous limestone terrace of Saint-Emilion as well as on a southern slope enjoying a sunny exposure. The soil is 2/3 limestone and 1/3 clay-limestone. Cultivation and winemaking of this Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 1er Grand Cru Classe are under the supervision of the team of Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix.

"I do not drink enough 1995 Right Bank wines, but the last two I have drunk (Figeac and Magdelaine) have been simply stellar. Out of magnum, the 1995 Magdelaine is still a tad on the young side, but it is so well-balanced that it is already a pleasure. The bouquet is deep and very classy, offering up a classical and quite sappy blend of red and black cherries, nutskin, cigar wrapper, a fine base of limestone, a touch of new oak and a gentle topnote of menthol. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still fairly primary in personality, with a rock solid core of fruit, excellent soil signature, moderate tannins, tangy acids and excellent focus and grip on the very long and classy finish. In magnum, this is still a puppy, but in bottle, I suspect it might be starting to stir from hibernation. (Drink between 2025-2080)"

"Firmly structured, tannic, but impressively concentrated, Magdelaine’s 1995 has a deep ruby color and a sweet nose of vanilla, kirsch liqueur, plums, and flowers. It is a medium-bodied, very pretty wine that is feminine, seductive, and well-balanced, although the tannins in the finish suggest it is not yet fully mature."



"95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.46 pH; 71 IPT; 13.5% alcohol): Dark red with a palish rim. Aromatic nose offers delicate if somewhat inexpressive aromas of ripe strawberry, kirsch, superripe plum and faded flowers. Then also monolithic and folded in on itself on the palate, showing a slightly bitter, metallic tinge to its saline, truffle and floral red berry flavors. This Magdelaine comes across as an easygoing midweight, though there's also good underlying sneaky concentration and power. The finish is long and smooth, but I found this Magdelaine a bit lacking in complexity and depth. The 1995 vintage brought a huge crop of grapes (over 6.5 million hectoliters of wine were produced in Bordeaux), with the growing season characterized by very fine weather throughout most of the growth cycle but marred by September rains. The wines are generally more even and consistent in quality than those of 1996 and it was an especially strong year for Pomerol. According to Berrouet, this is another classic Magdelaine that still needs plenty of time."
