Chateau Maucaillou 2016: a Moulis of great depth

The Chateau Maucaillou is a red wine produced in the Moulis-en-Medoc appellation. It comes from a 74-hectare vineyard. With an average age of over 30-years-old, the vines are mainly planted on Gunz gravel, as well as clay-limestone soil. The wine is aged in barrels (40% in new barrels, 40% with one wine and 20% with two wines). The 2016 Chateau Maucaillou is made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.

At Chateau Maucaillou, the 2016 vintage climatic conditions were marked with rainy winter, making it possible for the vines to build water reserves, and a fairly favourable spring with a lovely flowering of the vines. Summer was hot and dry. The harvest finally took place from October 7 to 27.

The Chateau Maucaillou 2016 develops red fruit, black fruit and forest floor aromas with pleasant empyreumatic notes (tobacco). It is medium-bodied on the palate with oaky flavors. The Chateau Maucaillou 2016 is a wine of great depth on the finish, revealing even a subtle spicy aftertaste.

This comment is mainly intended to describe a given moment of the general profile of the wine. Note that over time, the wine may have other organoleptic qualities since it may evolve in bottle.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Maucaillou has a well-defined, tertiary, sous-bois scented bouquet that unfolds in the glass but resolutely remains classic in style, revealing pleasant tobacco scents with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a bit of new oak showing its hand on the entry. That will need to be assimilated during élevage. But there is commendable depth towards the finish that has a subtle spiciness on the aftertaste. Tasted twice, the second time attested to improvement in bottle and I think it will continue that trajectory during its barrel maturation.
