Description

A complex and elegant Moulis wine

The estate

Château Maucaillou was founded in 1875, happily passing through the centuries since. Its historic position on Bordeaux’s Left Bank makes it one of the oldest vineyards in the Moulis appellation. At Château Maucaillou, history has been written for centuries as the know-how has been refined.

The vineyard

Château Maucaillou is a Moulis wine from a 72-hectare vineyard. The vines are over 30 years old on average and are planted on soils composed of Guntz gravel, clay and limestone.

The vintage

The winter was cool and dry. Flowering was early and took place under particularly mild weather conditions. A few stormy spells in June preceded a hot, dry summer, which favoured an equally early harvest. The grapes were rich and healthy.

Winemaking and ageing

Manual picking (20%) and mechanical harvest (80%) followed by manual sorting in the cellar. Vinification by grape variety and quality of harvest in thermo-regulated tanks. Gentle extraction. Alcoholic fermentation with daily pumping over. Devatting after tasting. The wine was aged in barrels (40% new, 40% one-wine and 20% two-wine).

Blend

Merlot (60%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (40%)
