Notes of spicy oak and dark earth here. This has a succulent, fresh feel with dark berries and plums and gently chewy tannins to close. Drink now.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

The 2017 Maucaillou is deep garnet-purple colored with oaky, earthy, vague plums and cassis notes with an herbal undercurrent. The palate has a good amount of cedar- and spice-laced black fruit with a plush texture and woody finish. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2027

The 2017 Château Maucaillou has a charming, fruit forward style, and while not overtly powerful, it has a unique, complex bouquet, ripe tannin, and a good finish. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years.

Jacques Perrin - Vinifera

Nez de fruits rouges, trace végétale, boisé appuyé. Le vin n’apparaît pas dans sa pureté.

Expert Review
Neal Martin - Vinous

The 2017 Maucaillou has a slightly muffled bouquet with mulberry and briary scents that need more focus and clarity. The palate is medium-bodied with light grainy tannin. On both occasions that I encountered this wine, it seemed a little green around the edges with a light, earthy and slightly animally finish.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

Sadly, élevage has not helped the 2017 Maucaillou. Its dried-out fruit and slender build suggest drinking within the next year or two.
