Natalie's Score: 89/100

From Barton & Guestier in the Haut-Medoc this is a classic Bordeaux, easy to understand .. and to drink. Château Magnol 2015 is blackberry, rich red berry, smoky and toasty oak on the nose, with more of those rich aromas on the palate with a lingering sweet, dried tobacco leaf and vanilla finish. Drinking beautifully now, but could easily hold in cellar for five more years, but that's going to be a difficult thing to do.

Food pairings: barbequed steak, barbequed pork ribs, rib roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Château Magnol 2015 is a Cru Bourgeois (classified in 1987) with grapes sourced from the left bank of the Gironde estuary in the Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux wine region, from a great vintage. Lush black currant, minty and spicy aromas on the nose. A dry and elegant 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc red wine blend with ripe black cherry, blackberry, black currant, sweet tobacco leaf and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for one year, 30% of which were new oak. Château Magnol's winegrowing history goes back to 1842 when Monsieur Delisse, an experienced agronomist, consolidated the vineyards surrounding the former Château du Dehez. The estate was purchased under the name "Château Magnol" in 1978 by Barton & Guestier, who undertook major investments in the vineyards and cellars. Decant for one hour and enjoy now with a grilled rib eye steak or ripe cheeses, but could easily cellar for another 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
