Winemaker Notes

The wines of Chateau Maucaillou are generally sumptuous in color, with a particularly subtle and pleasantly fruity aromatic strength, very ripe and concentrated flavors. They are harmoniously balanced, expressive and generous, with finesse and elegance. They have great length on the palate, with a lively appeal and remarkable cellaring potential thanks to very fine, yet clearly present, tannins.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Smoothly polished wine, lovely blackberry jelly flavors and sweet fruit. Ripe, juicy with wood and a potentially good structure.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Bright purple-ruby. Highly floral nose offers scents of lavender, lily, violet, blackberry, cedar and graphite. Lush, rich and sweet on entry, with rich black fruit and smoky underbrush flavors given adequate lift by lively acidity. Finishes pure, clean and long, with a trace of warmth, lingering notes of minerals and coffee, and a healthy dose of youthfully aggressive tannins. This wine will need at least a few years to resolve its tannins but should prove to be a splendid Maucaillou.
Barrel Sample: 87-90 Points
