The organoleptic qualities of Château MAUCAILLOU lead many wine experts to compare it to a Médoc Grand Cru Classé. “This cru has continuously increased in quality and is now undeniably at the level of a fine Cru Classé” (Didier TERS).
It was also the opinion of Robert PARKER who wrote of MAUCAILLOU that it was “equal to a 4th Cru”.
Patrick DUSSERT-GERBER qualifies it as a “Second grand vin classé, category B”.
Claude FERRET notes in his book BORDEAUX AND ITS WINES, that MAUCAILLOU “could figure in a new classification”.
… There is no doubt that MAUCAILLOU would have been included in the 1855 Classification of Grands Crus Classés but unfortunately it did not exist at the time, since its vineyard was only established in 1875. Which makes it, all the same, a respectable age.
Château MAUCAILLOU was one of the first properties of its type to be admitted into the exclusive circle of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, an association that reunites the best crus of Bordeaux.
