Barton & Guestier Château Magnol Haut-Médoc 2014.
Deep and brilliant cherry red with violet highlights. Expressive, rich and complex nose mixing black berries (blackcurrant, black cherry) and well balanced spicy and minty notes. Harmonious, well balanced full, fine and elegant with ripe tannins. The aftertaste is rich and aromatic (fruity, spicy with a hint of vanilla and tobacco notes).
The merlot displays flavours of red current, while the Cabernet Sauvignon shows off more black current notes. This is a full bodied wine with lovely silky tannins and a long spicy finish. With age this wine will develop more maturity characteristics and lovely toasty oak flavours.
Appearance: Deep red colour with shiny purple highlights.
Nose: Explosive nose of red berries and cherry jam aromas. Slightly toasty and peppery notes appear when agitated.
Palate: Good balance, with delicate and well balanced tannins. Long and generous aftertaste.
