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.

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.

A restrained style, with gently mulled plum, raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors that pick up well-detailed black tea and incense accents on the finish. A light mineral edge pierces and lifts the finish a bit, adding length. Best from 2021 through 2030. 3,137 cases made.

Solid density of fruit and velvety tannins to this one. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish.

Blackish crimson. Lots of ripe black fruits plus a bit of freshness. Quite zesty and appealing with a beginning, middle and end. Really quite successful and punchy. Lightly sandpapery tannins but long and well balanced. Really quite luscious. With an appetising saltiness on the end.

They have been on fire here lately and the 2016 continues that trend. Silky, plush, polished, pure and fresh, this finesse driven wine offers good concentration and lift, with ripe, sweet, dark red fruits and licorice from start to finish.

Description

Manoir whose original buildings date back to the 15th century, it was the property of the Laveau family in the 18th and early 19th century, when the area reached more than 130 ha, including 30 ha in vines. There followed 5 owners before the acquisition by Jean Nony in 1934, trading in Corrèze wine. Today, the estate is in the hands of Marie-Françoise Nony, wife of Jean-Pierre Nony (son of Jean Nony) who died in 2001, and his sons Jean-Antoine and Damien.


Terroir of the Château Grand Mayne

Located 1.5 km west of Saint-Émilion, near Franc-Mayne, the 17 ha estate is spread over a clay-limestone soil (coast), clay south (foot of coast) and sands on clay to the west (lower part). This variety offers great opportunities for the vineyard. The average age of the vines is very slightly above 35 years. The grape variety is made of Merlot (80%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The vineyards on the coast are grassed, which allows among others to fight against erosion.

Saint-Émilion and Saint-Émilion Grand Cru (in this appellation, the wines can benefit from the mentions Grand Cru Classé or Premier Grand Cru Classé). Geographically intertwined, these two appellations enjoy a tremendous diversity of soils and subsoils and give wines of a great variety: supple, powerful, fine, fruity or mineral.
