Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia Macan Clasico 2014

Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia Macan Clasico 2014

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2014 Macán Clásico, pure Tempranillo from their 92 hectares of vineyards in Ábalos, Labastida, El Villar and San Vicente de la Sonsierra, fermented after a cold soak, followed by malolactic partly in barriques and an élevage of 12 to 14 months in new and second use French oak barrels. It's still quite young and undeveloped, with good consistency, juicy, integrated and balanced. The Macán wines seem to be coming of age. It was bottled in May 2016. 68,468 bottles, 1,042 magnums and some larger formats were produced. Drink: 2019-2024. 92+ points

The 2014 Macán is not yet going to be released, as they are going to age it one more year in bottle. Tasting 2012, 2013 and 2014 you can see how they lowered the amount of new oak and are looking for more neutral barrels."
