- 94 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "I kept going back for another taste of this wine, so delightful is the structure. Lovely chalky tannins, this shows how in 2016 the new oak can be beautifully eaten up. Gorgeous minerality and deft black fruits, precise and finessed. 2.3ha from the limestone plateau and slopes, this is the smallest classified growth in St-Émilion. 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 100% new oak. Drinking Window 2027 – 2050"
- 93-94 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Loads of chocolate and dark fruits here, with hints of roses. The quality of the tannins is so beautiful with a silky texture and a long subtle fruit. Burgundian quality of tannins. Super fine."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||Clos La Madeleine, a jewel-like vineyard of just 2.3 hectares, is located on the south-facing plateau and terraces of Saint-Émilion, nestled in the vineyard of Château Bélair-Monange. The estate was acquired by Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix in September 2017. The Magdelaine sector has been home to the leading wines of Saint-Émilion since vines were first planted here in the 6th century. Clos La Madeleine, a privileged enclave in this propitious hillside, exemplifies the elegance and minerality characteristic of these well-exposed limestone parcels. The vineyard of Clos La Madeleine, planted on limestone bedrock covered, in some areas, by just 50 cm of clay, is managed with attentive care throughout the year (ploughing, selective cover-cropping, leaf thinning, green harvesting). A manual harvest followed by two thorough sortings ensure that only those grapes which have achieved optimal maturity are selected. Following the alcoholic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks and large oak casks, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for 16 to 18 months. Mr Hubert de Boüard de Laforest acted as consulting oenologist for Clos La Madeleine from 2006 until the 2016 harvest. The Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix technical teams took over full management of the property following the acquisition. The wines of Clos La Madeleine, charming, elegant, with a remarkable mineral streak, embody the distinction of this noble terroir.|
