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 great finesse.
"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." 94 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Grand Mayne has turned out beautifully. Fresh, perfumed and nuanced, the 2016 is super-appealing. Sweet red berry, blood orange, mint and flowers add energy to an expressive Saint-Émilion that is texturally rich and also vibrant. I really like the sheer energy of the 2016. This is a wine of real character." 93 points, Vinous
"This is a rich and balanced wine. It has generous tannins and ripe black fruits, nothing in excess. Spice and fine acidity in the aftertaste show the wine has a good medium-term future." 92 points, Wine Enthusiast
"Solid density of fruit and velvety tannins to this one. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish." 92 points, James Suckling
