Macan Classico 2013 Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia
|Brand||Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia|
Checking the evolution of the 2013 Mac?n Cl?sico next to the 2012 and 2014 vintages was a fascinating exercise. 2013 is a cooler vintage with slightly lower alcohol and more freshness, a challenging shorter vintage. There is less concentration than in 2012 or 2014. It's very drinkable and pleasant, medium-bodied, ready and for the short and medium term. 39,500 bottles, 1,071 magnums and some larger formats were bottled in May 2015.

Black cherry and plum flavors mingle with chocolate, loamy earth and leafy notes in this firm red. Has good density, and the sweet-tart acidity keeps this lively.
