Barton & Guestier Chateau Magnol Cru Bourgeois Haut-Medoc

Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Quite developed. Some tar but still a cornucopia of fruits. Sweet, ripe and a real mouthful. Great potential and charm already.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Intense garnet colour with purple Highlights. Flattering nose with intense cooked red fruit aromas (blackecurrant,plum). The ageing in oak gives. Round and well balanced with ripe and velvety tannic. The finish is long with intense red fries aromas.
