The nose displays ripe plum, cedar, black tea, espresso, forest floor, dried herbs, and hint of crushed rocks. Warm smooth entry, leading to a rich but well balanced palate. The elegant tannins is still a bit chewy. Very classy.
The 04 was great, but this is better, which should not be a surprise given the great vintage of 2005 in Bordeaux. And at less than $30, the price is just silly! — 7 days ago

Blend of Merlot and cab frank. Cab frank notes are strong for low percentage. Good summer red with berry notes but not distinctive. 2016 vintage but could rest for a while yet to improve it. Definitely a better drink with food (teriyaki chicken in this case). — 6 days ago

Nice bubbles, sweeter than expected. Nice to sip on pre-dinner on a hot day. I think we purchased from Solo Vino on Selby Avenue. — 10 days ago

The nose is a delight of cassis, blueberry & blackberry as well. For being a 2010 I was worried how this would behave- but there’s no worry here. 2010 was a legendary vintage all throughout Bordeaux- and this inexpensive little number is proof of the point. It’s in its prime, and costs a dime for every dollar one would consider spending on more recognizable labels. Yea. I’ve given the matter a lot of thought, and the 2010 Château Magdeleine Bouhou is my 2020, Poor Man’s Cheeseburger Wine of The Year.
