Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"(a blend of 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.53 pH; IPT 65; 13.8% alcohol): Bright ruby. Sexy, compelling nose of blackcurrant, violet, white pepper and minerals is an absolute knockout. Then very refined on the palate, with a delicate spiciness to the blackcurrant, red plum and mineral flavors, but with noteworthy fleshiness and ripeness lifted by harmonious acidity. This is a very great and impeccably balanced Magdelaine in the making. Finishes long and silky, with a persistent strawberry note. Jean-Claude Berrouet considers this to be a classic Magdelaine: very well balanced and delicious. I think this is an excellent example of just how easy it is to misjudge Magdelaine on release and how well it develops in bottle in strong vintages." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 93
"From the stable of Jean-Pierre Moueix, this estate has now been absorbed by the nearby Belair (renamed Belair-Monange). Exhibiting gorgeous kirsch liqueur notes with some plum and Asian spice and dense ruby/garnet to the rim, this 2005 is full-bodied, rich, and bigger and more masculine than this wine tends to be. It is a beauty, with loads of fruit, great purity and texture. Drink it over the next 20-25 years." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"Very plummy and floral on the nose, with hints of toasty oak, and also chocolaty. Full-bodied, with pleasing fruit character and a sweet tobacco and light cream aftertaste. Has soft tannins and a caressing texture."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 93
"Perhaps not the most open and generous of wines, but in a style that has become typical of Magdelaine, this wears its austerity, tannins and dry core proudly. But, because it is 2005, the wine is deliciously perfumed, and the bright cherry flavors are enticing. For aging over 10 years at least."
