Description
Macán is one of the most eagerly anticipated new projects ever, let alone in Rioja. Come on, a partnership between Edmond de Rothschild and the most venerable wine estate in Spain, Vega Sicilia, in one of the world's most beloved wine regions? It sounds almost too good to be true. This new project has brought with it some innovation, for Rioja anyway, in the implementation of what is referred to as the 'château concept,' where the wine is produced from grapes grown only in proprietary vineyards. The traditional Rioja method would be to purchase grapes from independent growers. Though the Rothschild and Alvarez families began working together here in the early 2000s, creating at least four vintages to establish exactly what it was they were hoping to accomplish, it was not until 2009 that they produced their first official vintage. The 2009 vintage was awarded a rating of 93 points in December 2013 by Luis Gutierrez of erobertparker.com, who described it as ' ... Concentrated but m
Tasting Notes
The youthful-looking 2013 Macán is pure Tempranillo sourced from a myriad of plots of old vines from the 90 hectares of vineyards they own mostly in the village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. It fermented in oak vats, with 20% of the volume going through malolactic in barrique and an élevage of 14 months exclusively in French oak barrels. The two wines from 2013 share a common characteristic, which is better integrated oak and a subtler mouthfeel. Other than that, the ripeness of the grapes also seemed more moderate, which has resulted in fresher, more elegant wines. Here there is a mixture of red and black fruit, and some notes of dark spices. The palate shows very polished tannins and good balance, more serious than the Clásico. Yields were lower and they also had to sort and select grapes, so quantities are lower at 52,000 bottles in the case of this Macán. Drink date: 2016-2023. Score - 93.
