Chateau Maucaillou 2020

A smooth and balanced wine from Moulis-en-Medoc

The estate

Established in 1875, Chateau Maucaillou boasts one of the oldest vineyards in the Moulis appellation on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

Chateau Maucaillou is surrounded by a large 66-hectare vineyard. Aged more than 30 years on average, the vines are planted in soils made up of Guntz gravel, clay and limestone.

The winemaking and aging

Manual (20%) and mechanic (80%) harvests are followed by manual sorting at the winery. Vinification by grape variety and harvest quality in thermoregulated vats. Traditional vinification, with pre-fermentation at 22°C. Alcoholic fermentation accompanied by daily racking. Devatting after tasting. Aging is carried out in barrels (40% new, 40% of one previous wine and 20% of two previous wines).

Blend

The 2020 Chateau Moucaillou is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (52%), Merlot (43%), Petit Verdot (5%).

Tasting

Intensely fruity and beautifully complex, the 2020 Chateau Maucaillou seduces with its concentration, smooth texture and its balance. Despite the lower yields due to the weather conditions, the grapes harvested were of a great quality overall.
