    A touch of the screw from the Durand and the cork falls into the bottle. I didn't have high hopes after that but luckily it's not dead.

    Maybe not the greatest Magdelaine I've had but quite enjoyable. Starts with dusty plums and then with air a velvety texture and develops along with some red raspberry on the palate.

    On the whole a lovely older claret and a very pleasant way to see out a notably unpleasant year.

    Given the cork I can't say if the bottle is representative.
