The Chateau Grand Mayne is a Grand Cru Classe from the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. With vines averaging 35 years of age, the 17-hectare vineyard is planted on a clay-limestone hillside and at the foot of a hillside consisting of a mixture of clay and ancient sand on top of a clay subsoil. The wine is aged for 18 months in barrels (65% new and 35% in one-year-old barrels). Chateau Grand Mayne 2016 is made from a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
At tasting, the Chateau Grand Mayne 2016 shows elegance and refinement. It develops grassy aromas on the nose. On the palate, the tannins are extremely fine and it offers crisp acidity. The finish is wonderfully refined and mineral.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Grand Mayne features fragrant kirsch, redcurrant jelly and black plums scents with touches of garrigue, mossy bark and Sichuan pepper. Full-bodied, rich and densely laden with vibrant red and black fruits, it has a plush frame and very long, earth-laced finish.
