The 2009s were made with only Belair fruit, and the Magdelaine vineyards were only incorporated in 2012.
The wine was dark, with as one would expect, no sign of browning. The nose is rich, dark fruit, and relatively simple. There is a tinge of spice but this is fairly anonymous. Hard to say that it is even Bordeaux, blind my guess would be a medium quality California wine. Not my style, but typical of where so many Saint Emilion wines have been going.
This is not one of those Luddite diatribes; the wine is well made, and very amiable. My wife liked it more than I did, but remarked about its lack of finish. For me, the problem is its lack of complexity. One glass was about all I could take.
I have not tasted it post the absorption of Magdelaine except in barrel. I have a 2014 downstairs, and will open it next month. A more classic vintage, and some great terroir might make for a better wine.
