Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Clos la Madeleine, Grand Cru, St Emilion, 2018

A robust, mineral infused new wine in the Moueix stable that points to a bright future. Full of dark chocolate and cherry fruit, savoury minerality and a sense of tilled earth, this doesn’t have the sweet caress of the most illustrious Moueix wines, but will deliver plenty of brooding pleasure in years to come and looks to have excellent oak integration.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2018 Clos la Madeleine is ripe and exuberant on the nose, offering red plum, mulberry and blood orange scents; earthier notes develop with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with dark berries, that white pepper that I noticed out of barrel not accentuated in bottle. Quite spicy toward the end, although it just misses a little depth on the granular finish, I suspect because I tasted it so soon after bottling. Give it two or three years in bottle and I am sure it will improve.
