2014

Macan Clasico is the joint vision that two great names of the wine world, Rothschild and Vega Sicilia, have of La Rioja. It is a very elegant wine, where the harmony of the aromas and flavors show the authenticity of the land from where they come and its capacity to produce great wines.
Macan Clasico is very approachable and expressive, more pleasant and pleasurable when drunk with a marked character of the land from which it comes and a simplicity that makes it very attractive.

100% Tempranillo, aged two years in French oak and one year in bottle before release.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I tasted the 2014 Macán once again, as they are holding the top wine to give it one more year in bottle before being released. It fermented in oak vats with inoculated yeasts and aged in new barrique for 16 to 18 months. They want to give this cuvée no less than three years in bottle. This 2014 was bottled in May 2016, not quite three years ago yet, but it can provide a good idea of the development the wine is going to have when it's released. It's evolving at a very slow pace; it's a tight red with plenty of tannins, and the time in bottle seems to be doing it good. There is concentration and power, as well as typicity from the variety and the zone, with that austerity from this part of Rioja. It's a serious, modern and nicely crafted Tempranillo with a touch of sweet spices and smoke. It should continue evolving nicely in bottle.
