Château Magedelaine 1994
Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Premier Grand Cru Classé
Slightly musty nose. Colour: rich dark red, almost blackberry. Not tawny.
Fine rounded claret
Long, mellow after taste
My companion tasted reminders of boysenberry, half-way between raspberry and blackberry.
Classic claret at its prime.
Developed to loose musty nose. Full blackberry taste, very front palette. Rounds when in the glass.
Capsularosso Chianti 1993
Generic Chianti Ruffino D.O.C.G, kept longer than usual.
