Château Magdelaine Premier Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Émilion 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $93.49-$109.99, 95 points, poured a deep opaque crushed blackberry/black currant purple/red up to the circumferential transparent rim.
The beautiful aroma of coffee, roses, cedar, toasty black fruit, and sea-breeze excelled!
Medium-plus bodied with luscious and ripe crisp acidity, layered and persistent tannin (very dry), and flavors that faithfully mirrored the aroma were balanced, velvety smooth, and delicious.
Finished long on spice, cola, pomegranate, a touch of heat (14% alcohol), and eucalyptus.
This Red Bordeaux was reminiscent of the Chateau Monbousquet 2009 Saint Émilion, and just as good.
(Saint Émilion) How do you say that word?
