A Saint-Emilion Grand Cru by Chateau Grand Mayne
Chateau Grand Mayne is a great vessel in a sea of vines in the heart of the Saint-Emilion appellation. Established in the 15th century, the property did not produce wine until the 17th century. In the 18th century, the Laveau family elevated the vineyard and estate to the top of the appellation. In 1934, the Nony family took over the wine estate and undertook major renovations. Today, the Nony family, still at the helm of Chateau Grand Mayne continues to produce spectacular Bordeaux wines.
Planted on a clay-limestone hill and at the foot of a clay hill, the Chateau Grand Mayne vineyard covers 17 hectares, of which 14.5 are in production.
Harvest from September 23 to October 9. Vinification in oak vats and thermo-regulated stainless steel vats.
Aging in barrels for 18 months. 60% new oak barrels, 40% oak barrels of one previous wine.
