Covering less than 200 hectares, Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion is the smallest of all Bordeaux appellations. Château Macquin was founded by Albert Macquin in 1885, the first agronomic engineer to plant again after the phylloxera epidemic in Europe. It currently has 31 hectares of vineyards, predominantly planted with Merlot. The grapes are mechanically harvested, fermented in stainless steel and thermo-regulated vats, and aged in 1/3 in oak barrels over 12 months, using 25% new oak. Their resulting wines are powerful and generous.
Garnet color, ripe red fruits, scents of oak offered by vanilla, toffee, and toast matched with graceful texture and tannins.
Grapes harvested by machine. By choosing a precise time to start harvest based on rainfall, the grapes reach the vat as quickly as possible in the perfect state of maturity. They are sorted on a sorting table before put in the tank for a long maceration.
Aged 12-18 months in barrels before being bottled.
"This attractively perfumed wine with ripe tannins and rich black fruits is polished from partial wood aging. The 80% Merlot gives the wine a generous character that offers concentration and good potential. Drink 2025." The Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points
