MAGDELAINE, 1990

St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France

Six bottles, $275 P/B

Excellent (new) condition, purchased on release!

MAGDELAINE

St. Emilion, Bordeaux, France
Ownership-27.2 acres, 3,000 cases produced
Average age of vines, forty four years
90% Merlot & 10% Cabernet Franc

1990-Tasted in Burgundy from a magnum acquired on release, the 1990 Château Magdelaine is what you describe as "classic" Saint Emilion, the kind produced in smaller and smaller quantities (and in this particular case, not at all). It has a clear, dark garnet color. The nose is forward with black fruit, cedar, wet woodland and tobacco aromas that actually give it a Left Bank allure. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins. For a 1990 Right Bank, it shows surprising structure and reserve, to the point where you would justifiably argue that it actually needs more time. Don't be afraid to open bottles of this lovely Saint Emilion now, but don't feel afraid to store larger formats for many more years. Drink: N/A. Last Tasted, August/2015.Rating, 92. N. Martin

In the new St.-Emilion classification, this wine has been fully absorbed by the Moueix family’s other nearby historic estate, Belair-Monange.

E/M for Photos, Info or Purchase.

PS: Checked the temperature in my cellar five minutes ago, 50.9 degrees!

It is a great wine; I find there is a disconnect between Neal’s effusive note and his 92 point score. It needs to be adjusted for inflation. A couple of years ago, I gave it a 95.
