    Macan is a modern and very personal take on the premium quality and highly expressive wines of the DOCa Rioja. It is a commitment to fineness, elegance, complexity and power. And it is the flagship of Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia, the project launched by Tempos Vega Sicilia and the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 2004.

    2 reviews for Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild and Vega Sicilia Macan Rioja 2017

    1. WA

      2017 was a very challenging year, as most of their vineyards in San Vicente de la Sonsierra in Rioja were affected by frost, unlike others in nearby Laguardia. Not only was it frost, but they also had hail later on in the season. Quantities suffered—they told me they lost 70% of the crop in Rioja that year—but they were happy about the quality of the 2017 Macán, being very careful with the fermentation and separating the press wine by quality. The 4,000-liter oak foudres helped to polish the tannins, and they used 50% new barrels. The élevage lasted 16 moths. It’s a little riper than the Clásico from 2018 that I tasted next to it, with a little more alcohol (14.5%) and mellow acidity. It’s clearly a weaker vintage, and the wine shows it: the fruit is a little ripe and shows some tiredness, like it’s evolving at a faster pace. It has abundant, slightly rustic tannins. It was bottled in September 2019. Quantities reflect the low yields. Best After 2022

    2. JS

      Aromas of ripe berries, spice and dried flowers with some licorice and meat. Full-bodied with round, rich tannins that are slightly chewy now. Yet, the wine shows lots of ripeness from the vintage, as well as length. Drink or hold.
