Domaine de Maucaillou is small with just 2.3 hectares of vineyard (about five and a half acres) which means that it can be closely managed by the two sisters that own the property. It is situated in the heart of Margaux, perhaps the best known and most prestigious appellation of the Left Bank Bordeaux regions.
The fine gravel over mineral-rich clay soils are believed to be among the better soils of the region helping to provide the structure, perfume, flavours and silky texture for which Margaux is known. The wines are deep in colour and concentrated. The finesse, smoothness and refined fruity aromas make Margaux the "most feminine of the Médoc".
Full tasting notes coming soon.
This wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the dominance of the Cabernet Sauvignon making this a classic Left Bank Bordeaux wine. It has spent 12 months ageing in oak barrels.
This is a great match for beef, lamb, goose and game; also a good pairing with mushrooms, hard cheeses and mild blue cheeses.
"Deep and bright colour. Full bodied with a lot of sensuality. Very good length with ripe tannins."
