Tiny yields malolactic in barrel aging on its lees and no fining or filtration produced an exotic full-throttle St.-Emilion boasting an explosive nose of blueberry pie lead pencil shavings black truffles camphor incense... Tiny yields malolactic in barrel aging on its lees and no fining or filtration produced an exotic full-throttle St.-Emilion boasting an explosive nose of blueberry pie lead pencil shavings black truffles camphor incense and toasty oak. Made in a borderline extreme style the wine is extracted and full-bodied with enormous quantities of fruit extract tannin and glycerin. The alcohol of just over 14% is not as high as I would have expected. I purchased the 2000 Magrez-Fombrauge and am thrilled by the way it is developing as it is displaying more complexity and nuances now than it did when it was released. I suspect the 2009 will do the same thing but on a slightly faster evolutionary track. Wines such as this tend to transform from blockbuster fruit bombs into far more civilized elegant and streamlined wines. The 2009 should be forgotten for 5-6 years and drunk over the following 25-30.
