All Vintages of this wine
Coinciding with a veritable family saga, Château Maucaillou's history reflects both patience and passion. The château was built in 1875 in a very Baroque style that was popular at the time. It was surrounded by five hectares of vines. The Dourthe brothers, Roger and André, devoted their efforts to expanding the vineyard when they arrived at the estate in 1929, succeeding in attaining twenty hectares in 1967. At this point, Roger's son, Philippe, became manager. He added a further 67 hectares over a forty-year period, including vines on the three finest rises in Moulis. In 2007, Philippe Dourthe handed over management to his children Caroline, Pascal, and Magali. A fully-qualified team respectful of the Dourthe winemaking philosophy is now in control. A draconian selection at harvest time, precision winemaking in temperature-controlled vats, and careful ageing in barrel produce wines with a sumptuous colour, as well as rich, concentrated aromas, subtle tannin, and an astonishingly long aftertaste. Château Maucaillou has won numerous medals and regularly receives good reviews from critics.
Parker : 88-90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Maucaillou is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and scented of cedar chest and yeast extract over cassis and blackberry pie at the core. The palate is medium-bodied with good mid-palate intensity and plenty of black fruit, supported by fine-grained tannins and great freshness.
