Wine Spectator
Ripe and dense, but fresh, with silky-textured plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit carried by sweet spice and maduro tobacco notes. The fleshy finish shows nice drive. Should open up more with brief cellaring. Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2011.

Chateau de Macard, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau de Macard
The Aubert family has been established in the Saint Emilion and Dordogne region for 250 hundred years. Amélie Aubert with the help of her father Alain and lifelong friend Michel Rolland, is the sixth generation winemaker for the family owned Chateaux since 2000.

Chateau de Macard is located in the village of Pessac sur Dordogne , 95 me-ters above the river, facing south. The terroir is exceptional and unique to the area, it has all the components to make a great wine including Limestone to give minerals, gravel to give elegance and clay to give power.

A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exist, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. Still suffering for centuries after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry did not truly begin here until the late 20th century, after a mass influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology. The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is often moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, often necessitating irrigation.

Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include soft and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

Assyrtiko

View all wine

A crisp white variety full of zippy acidity and a striking mineral character, Assyrtiko comes from the volcanic Greek island of Santorini, but is grown increasingly widely throughout the country today. The reasons for its popularity are plentiful: it retains its acid and mineral profile in a hot climate, blends well with other grapes and can also withstand some age. Flavors often found in Assyrtiko and its blends include lemon zest, passion fruit, pineapple, flint and fennel. It is versatile when matched with food; try it with oysters, shrimp, salmon as well as grilled chicken, tomatoes and asparagus.
