The wine is an impressive blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, made under the supervision of Hubert de Bouard. I don’t think Clos La Madeleine has ever made a better wine. This 2009 has liqueur of dusty chalk intermixed with red and black fruits, hints of blackberry and black cherry, and loads of full-bodied opulence yet great structure and definition. This is a sleeper of the vintage and a personal best for Clos La Madeleine, long under the radar of wine consumers. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035.
