Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

Notes of black fruits, liquorice, peony and caramel are released by this garnet-colored wine. The suppleness of the attack matches with its earthy side, demonstrating all of its temper. Tasteful, the finish marks the appearance of smooth tannins and a taste of roasted red fruits. Persistent notes of roasted prune and nutmeg are ending the tasting.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Macquin

    The Château Macquin has been created by Albert Macquin who was the first agronomist engineer to replant after the phylloxera. The 31 hectares of the Château, mainly planted in Merlot, give powerful, full-bodied and generous wines.
    Extending on less than 200 hectares, the Saint-Georges designation is the smallest area neighboring the Saint-Emilion.

     

    • Terroir: The soil is made of clay and limestone. The vineyard extends on almost 32 hectares.
       
    • Viticulture: Each hectare has 5 000 plants. The vines, that are 45 years old on average, are harvested mechanically. The grapes are sorted on sorting tables and vibrating sorting tables.
       
    • Wine-making: This step is made using thermos-regulated concrete tanks and stainless steel tanks doubled with oak wood. The entire process is followed by an oenologist of the CBC laboratory.
