When young, Ch teau 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.
