Macán Clásico, Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia, Rioja DOC 2014/15
Macán Clásico, Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia, Rioja DOC 2014/15

– 2015 – The sweetness of the 2015 vintage is evident in this Macán Clásico with its ripe bramble nose but there is an intriguingly scented note to the bouquet which makes it extremely attractive. Full of crunchy, fresh red fruit, this is a refreshing, elegant and moreish Rioja. The tannins are all in evidence; they are pert yet incredibly fine suggesting that, whilst this can be enjoyed now, it has the structure of a much more serious wine.
