Palate Profile

Macán 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.

Critic Awards

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

Focused without being showy, this is somewhat subdued at first and opens slowly in the glass. Offers a core of bitter cherry, macerated strawberry, medicinal herbs and smoke backed by orange peel acidity and dense tannins. A good showing from a challenging vintage.
