Château Magnol

History

Château Magnol's winegrowing history goes back to 1842 when Monsieur Delisse, an experienced agronomist, consolidated the vineyards surrounding the former Château du Dehez. The estate was purchased under the name "Château Magnol" in 1978 by Barton & Guestier, who undertook major investments in the vineyards and cellars. The efforts were crowned with successs when Château Magnol was classified Cru Bourgeois.
The average age of the vines is 22 years. The plantation proportions stand to 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

 

 Location :  31 hectares of vines in the Haut-Médoc Appellation, west of the city of Bordeaux.

Climate : Micro-climate thanks to its proximity to the ocean and the estuary.

Soil : Gravel and some sand.

Blend : 2016 vintage : 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc.

Sustainable farming

For many years Barton & Guestier has been involved in responsible farming. Château Magnol is member of the first organisation for the Environmental Management System for Bordeaux wines, certified ISO 14001 in 2013. Every action involves considerations about land, energy, water and waste water quality, carbon and water footprint, safety and health.
As from its 2016 vintage, B&G has been certified Haute Valeur Environnementale (High Environnemental Value), level 3. Today this is the highest level of environmental certification for agriculture. The certification enables to attest that biodiversity components (hedge, grassy strips, trees, flowers, insects...) are numerous and that all our actions respect the environment: air, soil, water, biodiversity, landscape, with a minimum impact on nature.

Château Magnol

Classification:

AOC Haut-Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

Grape varieties:

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc

Tasting notes:

When young, Château Magnol shows a brilliant rich ruby colour. On the nose it develops an elegant and fruity bouquet, favoured by the blackcurrant notes of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the redcurrant notes of the Merlot. On the palate the wine is full bodied, with soft silky tannins, and a long spicy aftertaste. Ageing brings a fine maturity where it developes toasted oak flavours.

Food matches:

Perfect with red meat, grilled or roasted, especially lamb, duck-breast, and all fine cheese 
Serve at 16-18°C
