Macán Clásico 2013, D.O.C Rioja

£45.00

Macán is the result of a partnership between two of the great names in the world of wine, Benjamin de Rothschild and Vega Sicilia. Discussions began when Benjamin de Rothschild and Pablo Álvarez met in 2003. There was an agreement to approach this project in a different manner. They wouldn’t follow the age old maturation scale of reserva and gran reserva, and they opted for the use of Burgundian oak rather than American.

Tasting notes

Produced from 100% Tempranillo, aged for 12 months in barrel and then a further 18 months in bottle prior to release. This wonderful Rioja shows off a seductive nose of dark cherry, tobacco, vanilla, toast and dried flowers. There’s a richness to the palate with defined silky tannin and dark chocolate-infused fruit and peppery finish. Drink now or cellar for a decade.
