CHATEAU MACQUIN SAINT-GEORGES SAINT-ÉMILION
Château Macquin is located just three kilometres north of Saint-Émilion, in the small village of Saint-Georges, the smallest of all Bordeaux appellations (180 hectares). However, at its peak of 89 metres above sea level, Saint-Georges enjoys one of the best elevations on the right bank, giving the wines freshness and concentration. The south facing vines are planted on clay and limestone soils and range from 15 to 60 years old. The vines are sustainably farmed, without the use of herbicides, fertilisers, or other harmful chemicals.
This wine is a deep ruby red in colour, with alluring aromas of ripe red cherry, cassis and a hint of liquorice. The palate is full-bodied with silky, ripe tannins. Concentrated flavours of ripe red fruits, tobacco and graphite are balanced by a lifted acidity.
