Château Maucoil Châteauneuf du Pape 2014 Magnum (1.5l)

70.00

Description

Brooding, mysterious and sensuous, loaded with decadent date, raisin and mulberry flavours, with hints of cedar and tapenade. Smooth, luscious tannins, formidable weight and potency, and awesome length. A real classic!

Decant if possible and sip on its own or with roast fillet of beef.

Producer: Chateau Maucoil

In 1964, the Lavau family founded a company that produced wine from bought-in grapes and then sold it on in the bulk wine market. In 2000, Frederic and Benoit took control and the boys totally changed the direction of the business, deciding to start bottling their wine under the present Lavau label.

Château Maucoil has a long history stretching back to Roman times, when the property was used as an army fortress. Its most-recent incarnation began in 2013, when Château Maucoil was acquired by Lavau family. The estate spans 37 hectares, most of which is employed to grow a wide range of traditional grapes for Châteauneuf du Pape.

In 2014, Château Maucoil became certified biodynamic.

    "Good character, with lively anise, warm stone, smoldering tobacco and sage notes leading the way for a core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit. Has both silky and brambly accents through the finish."
