BARTON & GUESTIER CHATEAU MAGNOL HAUT MEDOC
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. The efforts were crowned with successs when Château Magnol was classified Cru Bourgeois in 1987.
When young, Château Magnol shows a brilliant rich ruby colour. On the nose it develops an elegant and fruity bouquet, favoured by the blackcurrant notes of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the redcurrant notes of the Merlot.On the palate the wine is full bodied, with soft silky tannins, and a long spicy aftertaste. Ageing brings a fine maturity where it developes toasted oak flavours.
This wine should be enjoyed with red meat and ripe cheeses. Try with Pyrenees cheese, black cherry jam and walnut bread. – Serve between 16°C and 18°C.
