 Not decanted. Dark red color. Medium intensity. Evolved. Very fine nose. Complex. Orange. Gingerbread. Lemon. Grapefruit. Wild strawberry. Caramel. Clean and supple attack, developing on a very, very smooth structure. Very slow, complex and smooth evolution, almost sweet. Final on fine and subtle tannin, totally surprisingly rich for a Cabernet Franc. Yield 18 hl / ha.

A rather meaty and rich wine with an abundance of developed fruit flavors. Deep ruby center with a garnet edge, and light stewed tomato, tobacco and orange peel aromas; full-bodied, with velvety tomato and tobacco flavors and a lovely, silky finish.

Magnum served blind initially alongside Monte Bello 1971. Wonderfully sweet, round and florally aromatic with a beautifully smooth texture. A brilliant wine, even if not a blockbuster, and one that I was given blind by owner Jacques Hébrard when I visited the château while researching The Great Wine Book in 1981. I'm delighted to be able to add a tasting note on it to our database – even if it is arguably more enthusiastic than explicatory. Still going strong.
