77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc
When to Drink: 2018 – 2025
Ownership: Jean-Pierre Moueix
This property on a south/southwest-facing hillside is quite small, just under six acres, and sits near the Moueix estate of Belair-Monange. If you are driving through St.-Emilion, it is a spectacular sight. The final 2013 blend of 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc achieved 13% natural alcohol. A sleeper of the vintage, the wine has an abundance of mulberry, black cherry and red and black currant fruit, cedar wood notes, underbrush and a hint of loamy soil (or perhaps that’s a variation of chalky minerality). Yields were healthy at Clos La Madeleine of 31.3 hectoliters per hectare. This medium-bodied, supple-textured wine should drink well for another decade or more.
Bright and open, with cherry, damson plum and white raspberry notes, backed by a lightly firm, singed apple wood edge. Exhibits good length, suggesting these two elements should marry during the élevage. —J.M.
A pretty wine with plum, spice and blueberry character, fine tannins and a fresh finish.
Floral, delicate and delicate nose, subtle length but of a real depth, delicate race, great finesse.
Juicy, fresh and clean. Medium weight but structured. Firm but fine tannins
