2012 Macan Clasico, Rothschild & Vega Sicilia, Rioja, Spain
Regular price £575.00
"I tasted the entry-level 2012 Macán Clásico in the context of the 2013 and 2014 vintages. 2012 was a warm and dry year, delivering very healthy grapes, and even if the alcohol was not higher in the wine, the acidity felt lower. The wine has benefited from extra time in bottle and appears very balanced, expressive and elegant, approachable with a soft, polished texture, very spicy, pleasant and tasty. 40,380 bottles and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in June 2014." Luis Gutierrez Feb 2018. 92+ Points. Drink 2018-21.
