Located in the Macau en Medoc region not far from the entry to the Margaux appellation, this Chateau dates back to the 18th century and now covers 22.5 hectares. The soils here are classic Garonne gravels with a clay sub-soil which provides a classic mellow character with relatively smooth tannins and an elegant and fine structure. These wines are remarkably consistent and approachable even in their youth.

Next-door neighbour to the Grand Cru Classé, Château Cantemerle, Maucamps is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. Coming from an older vintage, this a mature wine yet still very approachable. The nose offers savoury aromas of dried herbs and flower petals along with graphite and soft shades of ripe fruit. The acid on the palate is lively and the tannins are seamlessly integrated. This is a great option if you're looking to try an older vintage without having to wait! 

Pair this wine alongside with grilled flank steak, classic coq au vin, or a hearty beef or vegetable stew.

Lovely, mature right bank Bordeaux here, straight from the textbook with its gravelly, graphite, black fruit, tobacco leaf, and cassis aromas/flavours, as complex and inviting as many more expensive cru classés. The palate has been polished down to shiny-silky texture with acids firmly in place - this 2006 vintage has turned out to be a delight for fans of the classic style, more elegant and refined than blockbuster vintages, and all the better for it. Stately and aristocratic, and an amazing value for mature, ready-to-drink, quality Bordeaux. Continue to hold another half dozen years if desired, though I find it's at or near peak
