Macan 2010 Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia
|Brand||Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia|
In its second vintage, the Grand Vin 2010 Macan has a very Rioja profile, subtle aromas of forest floor, spices, blackberries (in fact a mixture of red and black fruit) and a lactic touch with smoky undertones plus hints of leather and ink. The palate shows good depth and is clean, focused, structured and balanced. Some earthy hints, somehow mineral, show through on this modern Rioja showing classical proportions: a clean, finely crafted Rioja. 53,500 bottles and some larger formats produced.

This chewy red shows concentration in a savory style. Smoky, tarry and licorice notes shadow a core of plum and tobacco flavors. Dense and rather austere, though floral and vanilla details emerge on the finish.
