Rothschild Vega Sicilia Macan Clasico Rioja 2016

Rothschild Vega Sicilia Macan Clasico Rioja 2016

Macan is the senior wine of the Vega Sicilia/Rothschild joint-venture in La Rioja Alta. It is a velvety texture with fine tannins and a elegance and linier dexterity that is reminiscent of Bordeaux.

"A very perfumed red with ultra fine and chewy tannins that coat the mouth and draw you down the linear line of this wine. Purple fruit, stones and blue fruit. Medium to full body. Better in 2021, but already beautiful. Drink now or hold. " 93 pts James Suckling

"The 2016 Macán Clásico is their second wine in the Bordeaux sense. In 2016, they fermented the wine in stainless steel and reduced the number of new barrels to 50%, while 5% of the barrels were produced with American oak at the Vega Sicilia cooperage. The new winery was 100% ready and now has much better facilities. The élevage lasted 12 months, and this has contained ripeness and integrated oak. The year had freshness and balance and helped to produce lighter and more expressive wines, like this one. This has to be one of the finest vintages for this cuvée." 93+ pts Luis Gutierrez The Wine Advocate
