Wine AdvocateAnother of my favorite estates from the southern part of the Medoc, Macau, this Haut-Medoc cru bourgeois is a blend of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. The alcohol was 14% and the wine bottled unfined and unfiltered by its consulting oenologist, the brilliant Claude Gros. Wonderfully dark ruby/purple in color, with loads of sweet berry fruit as well as hints of licorice and charcoal, the wine displays a lush texture, medium to full body, and the vintage's tell-tale ripeness, high glycerin and silky texture. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Wine SpectatorThis is ambitious, with ample dark toast, but also a core of roasted fig, currant preserves and graphite flavors that are up to the task, with a long, tobacco- and tar-filled finish that still has some grip to shed. Best from 2013 through 2019. 500 cases imported.
