Château Grand Mayne 2010

93 Vinous Media

Here is one of two FANTASTIC ready to drink Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classés we just received from the spectacular 2010 vintage. The wines have recently arrived direct from the Chateaux with perfect provenance and are just entering their prime. I tasted these this out of barrel a decade ago in Bordeaux, and tasting it again now it is great to see how it lives up to the early promise as it finally comes into its own. Fleshy, deep and dark, with supple tannins and mouth-filling Right Bank character,it has more than lived up to its early promise! Add to that, this comes from the outstanding 2010 vintage and has been perfectly stored for a decade. You don’t want to miss out!

Limited amount in stock now, so don’t wait. The fact that we got very sharp pricing, at or very near the lowest online, make this an excellent value. If you missed out on this incredible vintage, or have simply drunk up your mid-priced 2010s, don’t miss this opportunity to stock up for the season on a Right Bank classis to drink now and over the next half a decade or more!

A wine must reflect its terroir, its origins. We strongly believe that the uniqueness of the vineyard’s location is fundamental in the conception of a great wine. There can never be a great wine without a great vineyard." Jean-Antoine & Damien NONY In this respect, the wines of Château Grand Mayne are completely expressive of their place of origin. They are proud representatives of the best terroirs of the western hillside and foot of St. Émilion, composed of clay and limestone. A subtle blend of merlot and cabernet franc, the wines of Grand Mayne combine the power of fruit, elegant tension and finesse. Known for their excellent ageing potential, the recent vintages of Château Grand Mayne are now more open and accessible in their early years.
