Château Maucaillou 2022
In 1875, J. Petit-Laroche got married, and offered his wife in caDeau of marriage, the construction of a beautiful bourgeois mansion in front of his Médoc cellars: the present Château. The work was carried out by the Marian brothers, contractors in Moulis.
It is a strange and daring architectural mix that seems to marry several styles, like the Médoc wine that is made from a blend of several grape varieties.
The overabundance of decoration, which wants to evoke both the Renaissance, the mid and late seventeenth century, make this building an excellent example of the eclectic architecture that flourished in the Médoc at the end of the nineteenth century, before the crises that the vineyard may have experienced thereafter (Phylloxera, mildew, ...).
Critics Château Maucaillou 2022.
Description Château Maucaillou 2022.
The year 2022 was marked by a cool and dry winter. Flowering started early in May and proceeded very quickly under mild weather conditions. The summer was hot and dry except for a few storms in June.
These conditions favoured a very early vintage with grapes rich in sugar but with delayed phenolic ripeness.
Gentle vinification without too much extraction to avoid a significant release of tannins.
The wines are rich, very aromatic with a good mid-palate supported by the freshness of the ripe Cabernets. A beautiful and complete wine with certainly a very good potential.
