2014 Chateau Grand Mayne Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

2014 Chateau Grand Mayne Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

€74.95
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.

Description

With a prime location on one of the finest slopes in Saint-Emilion, (and at the foot of this slope), Grand Mayne - historically referred to as "Le Mayne" - is one of the most prestigious vineyards in the appellation. The chateau is a superb 16th century manor house that bears witness to the property's long history. Thanks to a fine terroir - famous for over three centuries - as well as exemplary work in the vineyard, precision winemaking, and careful ageing, Grand Mayne produces wines that have won numerous distinctions and earned glowing reviews in the press for their exceptional bouquet of gret finesse.
