I have had a few bottles of the 1971 Magdelaine since the original article, with the most recent one at our March vertical quite similar to the one I tasted back in 2006- suave, velvety and complex, but also rather easy-going structurally and not particularly deep. However, back in the summer of 2013 I crossed paths with a bottle in pristine condition, and that one showed far more depth and grip than this most recent bottle, and I take this note from that perfect example. The 1971 Magdelaine is outstanding on both the nose and palate, jumping from the glass in a mélange of roasted black cherries, woodsmoke, menthol, lovely soil tones, charred wood, espresso and black truffles. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and at its apogee, with a superb core, melted tannins, fine acids and a very long, pure and utterly suave finish. Great juice. 2013-2035+.
