Chateau Magneau 2006

Another good well, priced Bordeaux (a blend of 50% merlot, 45% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc), this time from the mixed (in my view) 2006 vintage.  This wine had an aroma of black fruits with a touch of tobacco.  Typical Graves.  The palate had nice length and a certain classy depth to it.  I am not sure this wine will age for a long time, but it is excellent drinking now.  88 to 89 points.
