2010 VINTAGE

  The very aromatic sauvignon shows very well in this expressive wine with aromas of white flowers (lily of the valley), lemon and exotic fruits (passion fruit).
A wine remarkable by its freshness and its delicacy.
2011 Bordeaux Tasting   The 2010 Magneau Blanchas a fresher nose, more mineral and maybe a bit flowery than the very good 2009. We found it fresher, rounder, crispier and more well-balanced than the 2009. The final is also more charming, with less acidity.
