Clos Margalaine 2015 / 750 ml.

Item#: 47735

VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2018
The 2015 Clos Margalaine was superb from barrel, but is less impressive from bottle. Why? There is plenty of texture and depth, but my impression is that the 2015 may have spent too much time in oak and would have retained more freshness had it been bottled earlier. Even so, there is plenty of sumptuousness to the sweet red cherry, pomegranate, mint and rose petal flavors. The blend is 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted three times.

Where It's From

Region / Bordeaux

View more wines from Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
