The 2016 Macán saw a new vinification by plot with the introduction of their new fermentation room. The Tempranillo came from selected vineyards from their 92 hectares; it fermented in oak vats and matured in 4,000-liter and barriques (50/50) for some 16 months and was kept in bottle for three years before being released. They think this 2016 is finally the style they were looking for, a wine with density and freshness. 2016 was the first year they vinified and aged from start to finish in the new winery, and they believe that gave them better control over the fermentations. 2016 is a year with more freshness than 2015, and they are trying to achieve wines with more tension and less power and oak than in the beginning. This could very well be the finest vintage of Macán so far. The grapes were picked between September 17th and October 3rd. 87,792 bottles, 2,570 magnums and some larger formats were produced. The wine was bottled in September 2018. Wine Advocate 94+

This is the most anticipated new project in Rioja in the last few years. After all, how often does the Rothschild family of Lafite fame in Bordeaux and Vega Sicilia from Ribera del Duero, one of the most prestigious wineries in Spain get together to make wine in one of the classical regions of the world? The first wines are from the warm, ripe 2009 vintage, and I-d say that save for the American oak, the wines have a certain Vega Sicilia character, clean and pure. I had tasted the wines a couple of times before and found them too powerful. Now they seem finer, more integrated. - Wine Advocate
