Château Macquin 2014 - Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion


Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion is one of the smallest appellations in Bordeaux - less than 20 estates - and one of the oldest wine areas in France. As a result these wines are pretty confidential! The vineyards enjoy significant elevation and slopes, a very nice environment for quality wines. Château Macquin was a great discovery to us - and probably the best value wine in this week's selection. Boasting an intense nose with blackcurrant, raspberry and cinnamon notes, this is a supple and concentrated wine with ripe, silky tanins. A top pick for this kind of price!

89/100 "This has a dark, dense core of bramble, currant paste and fig preserves, all framed by lively roasted apple wood and anise notes. The racy finish showcases the graphite edge of the vintage. Drink now through 2019. – JM"

87/100 "Ripe fruit, sweet tannins and soft texture mark this wine. It's full, ripe and lightly structured. An attractive wine for its black fruit and forward character." (previous vintage)
