Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Still a bit young, but a couple of hours in a decanter help smooth out and integrate some of the flavours. Aromas of red berries, dried herbs, warm spice and oak. Full bodied, with firm , young tannins, bright, balancing acidity, and lots of ripe, red berry flavours on the palate. Lots of oaky spice on a lengthy finish. Enjoy now with a grilled steak or hold onto this for 5-10 years.
Love this wine! Château Magnol 2016 is a classic Bordeaux and easy to understand. Rich with dark raspberry, blueberry, cassis, toasted oak spice and sous bois flavours on the palate. Tannins are structured and fine on this elegant Bordeaux blend. Nice now, but would benefit from a little more time in cellar. Try in 2022. If pouring now, decant for one hour and enjoy with a grilled rib eye steak or ripe cheese. 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. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
