Château Magdeleine Bouhou
Family estate since 1908, Château Magdeleine Bouhou is located in the hearth of the "Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux appellation". Muriel Revaire represent the fourth generation and she continues to rise the property. She’s now advised by Stephane Derenoncourt since 2010. The terroir speak here : clay and limestone soil, low yield and the wind generate by the estuary allowing good ripeness and late harvest. In the cellars the harvest is sublimate thanks to a vinification by plot in small concrete vat with thermos regulation. The extractions are made by “pigeage”. This gravity system, offer his characteristic to the wine, vintage after vintage : silky palate, rounded tannins et the pure expression of the fruit. The production is focused on three red wine, for a complementary range, heavily influenced by the MALBEC : - The “Petite Madeleine 100% Malbec” : a juicy wine with a pure expression of the fruit, quit rare for an 100% Malbec. Easy to drink, a real pleasure wine. - The “BOHA” : Merlot blend with our Cabernets produces a wine based on the fruit with a nice structure and the roundness of the tannins from the berries. - The GRAND VIN benefits from a twelve-month aging in French oak barrels, with 30% of new oak each year. He's made from the selection of the best plots of Merlot and the oldest Malbec, to produce something complex and structured.
