      Tasting Notes
      Less than 200 ha, the appellation Saint Georges-Saint Emilion is the
      smallest satellite appellation close to the Saint Emilion appelation. Chateau Macquin was created by Albert Macquin, the first agronomic engineer to plant again after the philloxera of the late 19th century.Dennis Corre Macquin is the wine-maker at Château Macquin and has continued to follow in his family’s pioneering footsteps. Dennis is a very hands-on proprietor and is involved in every vine-growing and wine making decision in order to be sure he has produced the best wine possible.

      It is a 31 ha vineyard, mainly merlot planted, giving strong wines, generous, almost as famous as Saint Emilion wines (without the huge price tag.) Saint-George enjoys one of the best elevations on the right bank, giving the wines freshness and depth.

      The 2015 is a blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Displaying a garnet-red colour. Intense nose with ripe red fruits, lightly woody. In the mouth, fresh and rich, mellowed fine grained tannins with great intensity. This is a very easy going and light footed wine. Whereas, Bordeaux is normally considered a heavier, richer wine this is veering towards elegance.

      "Dark ruby coloured dress. Nose with aromas of oak, liquorice, black fruits and mineral notes. In retro-olfaction, it is reminiscent of cassis, coconut, tobacco and graphite. On the palate its ample texture culminates in a long finish. Good acidity and fleshy tannins. "
