B&G CHATEAU MAGNOL HAUT MEDOC 2015

Chateau Magnol's winegrowing history goes back to 1842 when Monsieur Delisse, an experienced agronomist, consolidated the vineyards surrounding the former Chateau du Dehez. The estate was purchased under the name "Chateau Magnol" in 1978 by Barton & Guestier, who undertook major investments in the vineyards and cellars. The efforts were crowned with successs when Chateau Magnol was classified Cru Bourgeois in 1987.

Location : 30 hectares of vines in the Haut-Médoc Appellation, west of the city of Bordeaux.

Climate : Micro-climate thanks to its proximity to the ocean and the estuary.

Soil : Gravel and some sand.

Blend : 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc.

The average age of the vines is 22 years.

TASTING:
When young, Chateau Magnol shows a brilliant rich ruby colour. On the nose it develops an elegant and fruity bouquet, favoured by the blackcurrant notes of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the redcurrant notes of the Merlot. On the palate the wine is full bodied, with soft silky tannins, and a long spicy aftertaste- Ageing brings a fine maturity where it developes toasted oak flavours.
