Description
The 2017 Maximilien is a 54/46 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 10 months in an 80/20 mixture of French and American oak (20% new), then an additional eight months in neutral wood. It comes in at 13% alcohol. Suave and graceful, this is an appealing red, albeit in a straightforward style. Its wood is a little too aggressive, particularly in texture. It's not so much the vanilla flavor that stands out, but the cream. Overall, though, this is well balanced and tastes great. The tannins are ripe, so you can drink this right now. As the wood blows off, this demonstrated that the winery got the character of the grapes right, although there is a bit of green around the edges. 88 Points Wine Advocate
