Wine Review: Domaine de Magnaut Les Hauts de Boulin 2014

Domaine de Magnaut Les Hauts de Boulin 2014

Thanks to Heavenly Spirits I'm reviewing five wines by Domaine de Magnaut out of Gascony, France. I started with their Equilibre de Manseng 2014 and Euphorie de Rosé 2016, and now I'm no to Les Hauts de Boilin 2014, to be followed by Manseng Sec 2014 and Tannat 2014.

Paul Scott of Heavenly Spirits says: Domaine de Magnaut is a family owned winery in the Armagnac Tenareze region of Gascony. They also produce Armagnac and Floc. Jean Marie Terraube and his wife run the winery and four diverse vineyards. They harvest Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (for rosé), gros and petite Manseng in all four vineyards. Most of their production is sold from the winery. They are Designated "vigneron Independant".

The 2014 Les Hauts de Boilin is Cotes de Gascogne that's 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Tannat, and has a 14% ABV.

The color of the wine is a deep garnet. There's aromas of briar patch, cassis, cranberries, mocha, and graphite. It's medium bodied with structured tannin and a tart acidity. There's flavors of cassis, plums, dark chocolate, and blood iron. Then it finishes with plums, cranberries, and graphite.

It's a serviceable red for $12 that you'll enjoy and won't regret purchasing. And yeah, the picture fits. It'll be pretty darn good with grilled meats, grilled vegetables, and barbecue whatever.

Also, and this is very important, LET IT BREATH!

QUALITY VS PRICE RATING
Price: $12
Rating: 3/5 = Satisfying (what does that mean?)

The bottle used was supplied free of charge for the purpose of this unpaid review thanks to Heavenly Spirits. To have your wine reviewed follow this link.
