This delicious medium to full bodied, opaque purple/red hued wine is rich, complex and full of promise. After allowing to breathe for one hour the tight nose opens nicely to exhibit aromas of blackberry, cherry, cedar wood, vanilla and leather. On the palate, the the upfront plum, currant and blackberry flavors are well balanced by the delicate oak, refreshing acidity, loads of velvety tannins and a rich, thick finish which is long and delicious. The wine was matured in new and year-old casks that confer smoothness, elegance and finesse – female traits befitting the Baroness Nadine de Rothschild. Amazing quality for this estate. Best after 2008.ChateauMalmaison2001.gifThis delicious medium to full bodied, opaque purple/red hued wine is rich, complex and full of promise.

Aromatic and deep, this Bordeaux is rich and fruity with a more mild tone of acidity than the usual Bordeaux. It poured much richer than I was expecting and finished very well. This bottle compliments meats (rare) extremely nicely. Tastes of rich deep fruits and toffee are evident with the standard earthy undertones associated with classic Bordeaux’s. Very enjoyable. A nice wine.
