Makievka is located in Saint Emilion on the plain a few minutes
drive from the north medieval city. It is a powerful and elegant wine whose
eloquence is best expressed after 2 or 3 years...
of the name
This name, atypical in Bordeaux, comes from the family's background
: the grandfather, whose picture appears on the label, was born in 1904
in Makievka, a city in the south of Russia. The name was given as a
tribute to this grandfather, a valiant strapping fellow who settled
his family in the wine business. Since 1991, city of Makievka is in Ukrain.
wood and love...
The Chateau Makievka is a smart wine with irreproachable technique which
allows the soil to express itself.
Green grapes harvested in a reasonable amount, gentle treatment... everything
is done to get a healthy and mature grape, which we'll gently transform
into this smart and powerful wine. Then, the wine is transferred to
new barrels : French oak to give promptness and temper, American oak
to give flexibility and voluptuousness.
Responsable long-term farming, where ecology & biodiversity are constant & daily commitments in our vineyards & winestore.
Our Saint-Emilion is produced with no chemical yeast. The absence of chemical yeast ensures the wine will develop full and complex aromas all through its aging process.
