      I'm Thomas,I'm the Category Manager of Auchanwines. Clos Magne Figeac is very good quality Saint-Emilon wine, the wine has supreme intensity on the nose showing a great complexity, despite its young age giving a nice glimpse of the development and the potential. On the palate it is well-balanced, with a firm structure and good concentration, nice complexity and a decent length on the finish. It is ready to drink now though can benefit from further ageing of another 5-10 years.

Grape

  • Merlot(78%)  
    It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.
  • Cabernet Franc(22%)

Intense and complex red fruit aromas, with toasty and woody notes. Juicy and powerful, the wine is excellent when young to enjoy the full power and fruits, and can be cellared for a few years to discover its complexity and intense aromas.
