2014 Saint-Emilion, Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux

The 2014 Grand Mayne is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. On the nose, this Saint-Emilion is very aromatic on fresh black fruit notes. The swirl brings out the empyreumatic character (marked by the ageing process) linked with the wooden notes without hiding the fruit. The palate of this Grand Cru Classé reveals a mineral hint (hint that might be linked with the limestone scattered on the soils and subsoils of the property which is located at the foot of the Saint-Emilion plateau) and then develops in a straight, sappy but not aggressive tannic structure. The finish is quite long on a fruity accent. This wine was skilfully vinified.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Grand-Mayne has a fragrant bouquet, perhaps more refined than in recent years with dried rose petals and incense fusing with the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and a gentle build towards a vivid, lightly spiced finish that maintains impressive delineation, perhaps less extracted and more precise than wines of the past. This is a superb Grand-Mayne that represents a subtle change in tack for the estate--one that this writer approves of. Tasted on three occasions and consistent every time.
