The wine goes well with meat and game dishes, especially grilled steaks, as well as aged cheeses.
The wine is ruby-colored with red-brown reflections.
The aroma of Chateau Haut Maurac 2018 is complex and inviting, with notes of black fruit such as blackcurrant and blackberry, along with hints of spice, tobacco, and cedar. As it opens up, there may be a subtle earthiness or forest floor scent present.
The wine is full-bodied with a firm tannic structure. The black fruit notes continue, along with flavors of dark chocolate and coffee. The finish is long and elegant, with a pleasing balance of acidity and tannins.
