The complexity of a fruit-forward and balanced Moulis en Médoc

The grand vin of Château Maucaillou expresses the typicality of the Moulis en Médoc appellation in what was a beautiful vintage for Bordeaux.

Located on the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Maucaillou expands over a vineyard of 66 hectares in great Guntz gravel and clay-limestone soils.

With plenty of significant climatic contrasts, 2018 nevertheless marks the birth of an exceptional vintage. At Château Maucaillou, the harvest was spread over 3 weeks in order to pick each grape varietal and plot at the right time. The harvest gave lower yields than usual and smaller fruit.

The Château Maucaillou 2018 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%). A great success for the property, the Château Maucaillou 2018 presents the profile of a vintage with a brilliant complexity and very pure fruit. The balanced palate offers a deliciously creamy and tasty texture. A great red grand vin from Moulis en Médoc, bearing the signature style of Château Maucaillou.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Maucaillou bursts from the glass with notions of plum preserves, baked blueberries and blackcurrant cordial with underlying violets and licorice scents plus a touch of forest floor. Full-bodied, firm and chewy in the mouth, it is packed with earth-laced muscular fruit and finishes just a little firm.
