How is the Cuvée Magnoux 2012 doing presently?

15 March, 2018 Posted by Domaine COMMENTS (0)

After several years of  ageing in our fresh and dark cellars, we recently tasted a few bottles of Magnoux 2012. The wine is now ready for drinking, expressing all the power and finesse of this great vintage in Faugères.

On the nose it offers an intense bouquet of fresh forest floor, cherries, plums and cocoa, while fresh acidity and silky tanins dominate on the soft, medium-bodied palate. A long, tasty, slightly salty finish, supported by fruit flavours, almonds and chocolate, with a touch of leather. Enjoy it now, with veal roast in herb crust, game birds or spicy roasted vegetables … Or let it mature in the cellar for another five to seven years under good conditions (temperature and humidity).
