Château Maucaillou

In 1875, J. Petit-Laroche married, and offered his wife in caDeau of marriage, the construction of a beautiful bourgeois home opposite his Médoc cellars: the present-day Château. The work was carried out by the Marian brothers, contractors in Moulis.

It's a strange and daring architectural blend that seems to marry several styles, much like the Médoc wine that's made from the blending of several grape varieties.

The overabundance of decor, which aims to evoke the Renaissance and the mid- to late 17th century, make this building an excellent example of the eclectic architecture that flourished in the Médoc at the end of the 19th century, before the crises that the vineyard may have subsequently experienced (Phylloxera, mildew, ...).

Description Château Maucaillou 2022.

The year 2022 was marked by a cool and dry winter. Flowering started early in May and proceeded very quickly under mild weather conditions. The summer was hot and dry except for a few storms in June.

These conditions favoured a very early vintage with grapes rich in sugar but with delayed phenolic ripeness. 

Gentle vinification without too much extraction to avoid a significant release of tannins.

The wines are rich, very aromatic with a good mid-palate supported by the freshness of the ripe Cabernets. A beautiful and complete wine with certainly a very good potential.
