Characteristics of Macán Clásico

Macán Clásico is a red wine from Rioja developed by Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia.

This winery was established as a result of the union of Benjamin de Rothschild, president of the Swiss financial group LCF Rothschild together with several wine-related projects worldwide, and Vega Sicilia, the famous Spanish winery.

Macán Clásico is a varietal made from grapes of Tempranillo from vineyards located in the town of Labastida.

After a careful selection of grapes and fermentation, Macán Clásico undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels (30%) and deposits (70%).

Aging occurs for 15 months in French oak barrels of fine and extra fine grain, mostly in new oak barrels.

Macán Clásico uses the bordelaise tradition of producing first and second wines. Both are made up using exactly the same classification, when different batches are separated to be made into each of the two wines.

Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 17ºC

Tasting notes Macán Clásico

It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
