Description

Another excellent to outstanding effort from the Nony family, the 2011 Grand-Mayne offers up beautifully sweet raspberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with crushed rock-like notes as well as a jammy character (unusual in this vintage). Medium to full-bodied with a complete mouthfeel and sweet, but moderate tannins, this beauty can be enjoyed in several years or cellared for 12-15. - WA91

This has good energy, with dark bramble, raspberry ganache and linzer torte notes pumping along, lined with anise and carrying through a nicely structured finish. Shows solid range and bright, well-integrated acidity. Best from 2016 through 2025 - WS90

The Winery

Château Grand Mayne is a wine estate located in the center of Saint-Émilion in Bordeaux. The vineyards are planted to a combination of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for the creation of the estate's Saint-Émilion Grand Cru classé and second label wines.

The Laveau family were the proprietors of the estate from 1685 until 1893, and at its peak the estate comprised 250 hectares (620 acres) of land. It passed hands several times before being acquired by current owners the Nony family in 1934. Grand Mayne is named for the manor, or mayne, which was built on the property in the late 16th and early 17th century.

Today, the vineyard covers just 17ha (43 acres) of a 21-ha (52-acre) estate. The vines are planted on slopes that face south and west, on clay and limestone soils. Harvest is carried out by hand and the grapes from each plot are vinified separately in stainless steel and wooden tanks. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for approximately 15 to 20 months before bottling. Château Grand Mayne makes approximately 50,000 bottles of its Saint-Émilion Grand Cru classé wine per year and approximately 30,000 bottles of its second wine, Filia de Grand Mayne. - Information from Wine Searcher
