Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Couly Dutheil La Baronnie Madeleine Chinon, composed of 100% Cabernet Franc, has intense aromas of milky black berry, plum and fig on the nose and plum and blackberry on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with good acidity, notable tannins and a medium to long, woody and smooth finish. It is food friendly or a sipper; drink 2014 – 2017+. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts – good valued Franc for under $25. Tasted at 'Loire Valley Tasting' http://grapeselections.com/Loire-Valley-tasting/ in Oct/13.

See my wine recommendations readily available at the LCBO here:

The 2010 Baronnie Madeleine is 100% Cabernet Franc. Full-bodied goodness and warmth with exuberant layers of bell pepper, red currants and anise. Vibrant acidity lifts the fruit and makes this wine a zingy pleasure from first sip to satisfying finish. Decant for 1-2 hours. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.
