Fifth generation vigneron in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region in the village of St Genis du Bois. Château Motte-Maucourt owes its name to the presence of a feudal mound ("motte") in the heart of its vineyard. It belonged in 1277 to Pierre de Laubesc, a local knight who paid homage to the Lord of Benauge. 50 ha of vines with an average age of 25 years producing red, white, and rosé. The red wines are aged between 15 and 18 months in a combination of tank and barrel. The 2015 Motte Maucourt, Bordeaux Supérieur shows all the strength of the superb 2015 vintage – soft, forward with ripe, sweet fruit and fine tannins. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

A fine 2015 Bordeaux for $11? Sweet oaky, cassis aromas with sweet blackberry flavors. So easy to drink, but it will age well for a few years. Buy cases. Here is you large party red-even California red wine drinkers will love it. Jammy style.
Drink from 2017 to 2022

This is filled with sweet and gentle baked red fruit in a soft, caressing style. The subtle finish of warm cherry seems to linger and expand on this Super Bargain.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
