Review

The first wine of the new project embarked upon by Benjamin de Rothschild and Vega-Sicilia in Rioja territory, specifically in San Vicente. In fact, the name of this wine, as well as that of their second wine, comes from the word which is used colloquially to refer to the inhabitants of San Vicente de la Sonsierra.

Along the same lines as the Bordeaux tradition, this new winery produces two wines, one that is more powerful and complex, Macán, and the other more accessible.

Macán is made from the grapes of Tempranillo vines aged between 35 and 90 years old and afterwards undergoes 15-17 months of ageing in French oak. It is a wine of rare elegance, powerful, elegant and expressive, with velvety tannins and a unique characteristic, its minerality.

Gran descubrimiento

Excelente vino, elegante, mineral, sedoso... justifica con creces su precio.

Sorprendentemente bueno. Elegante, sin ser delgado. Si todos fueran así, seria ideal.

Sin embargo, no podríamos beber vino se todos fueron a estes precios. Que enorme responsabilidad mantener esta calidad. Muy recomendable.
