2015 Francs Magnus, Bordeaux Supérieur

SKU #1432174 James Suckling

 A wine with ultra-fine tannins and pretty fruit. Medium to full body. Persistent finish.  (4/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Francs Magnus is scented of bright red fruits with florals and dried leaves hints. Medium-bodied, it's chewy and a little lean but with nice freshness and expression. (LPB)  (2/2018)


 The 2015 Francs Magnus offers lovely depth and creaminess in a forward, fruit-driven style that reflects the ripeness of the year. A host of dark fruit/spice/torrefaction notes wrap around the juicy, deep finish. This is a solid showing. Hubert de Boüard consults. (AG)  (4/2016)

We taste this wine in April 2019 and loved it as a value red. It offers lovely depth and creaminess in a forward, fruit-driven style that reflects the ripeness of the year. This wine making team uses Hubert de Bouard as a consultant so the wine tends to be in the modern vein. Spice and black fruits abound on palate. Very nice value.
Drink from 2019 to 2025

Additional Information:


Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
