2017 Grand Mayne

$606.00
6 x 750ml
The 2017 Grand Mayne has quite a powerful, voluminous bouquet with red berry fruit, smoke and truffle aromas, not quite delivering the same level of delineation as the previous vintage but still nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, clean and precise with a fine bead of acidity. It is a lighter style of Grand Mayne compared to the wines of ten years ago, more nimble on its feet. The finish is lively, uncomplicated and quite mineral-driven, completing what is a fine follow-up to the 2016, though this will drink earlier. Read more

This is a sweet, soft, polished, medium-bodied wine. Forward with bright cherries and black raspberries, licorice and just a hint of espresso, the tannins are soft and the finish has a bright, plummy appeal.

Nez profond sur les fruits mûrs. La bouche est pleine et fraîche, centrée et vineuse, avec une belle longueur. Très jolie réussite.

Loads of red and black fruits, hints of sandalwood, incense and dried flowers emerge from the 2017 Château Grand Mayne. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and rounded on the palate, I love its tannin quality. With rock solid mid-palate depth and plenty of length, it should end up being an outstanding wine.

Well-focused, with bright raspberry, plum and red licorice notes racing along, set against a backdrop of brambly structure.—J.M.

The 2017 Grand Mayne offers good depth and persistence, but it also feels very compact and dominated by oak and torrefaction notes, alongside dried herbs and menthol. The 2017 is attractive, but it was far more expressive from barrel; let's see where it goes. 90+

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Grand Mayne features scents of warm black and red plums, boysenberries and fragrant earth plus wafts of cedar, unsmoked cigars and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rugged, chewy frame and just enough savory flavors, finishing on a stewed tea note. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2030. 89+

Winemakers Note

Château Grand Mayne, a Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Emilion to follow! Grand Mayne is surely one of the most promising property among the Grands Crus Classés of Saint-Emilion, with its "pied de côte" vineyard producing high quality wines. In the 90's, the estate was already a forerunner: important works have been undertaken to build an underground cellar and the property has been advised by Michel Rolland for twenty years. Today, Jean-Antoine and Damien Nony are the third generation at the helm of the estate. They are part of Bordeaux Oxygen, an association of young producers/owners, among which Mathieu Cuvelier from Clos Fourtet, Jean Triaud from Gloria and Saint-Pierre, or Juliette Bécot from Beau Séjour Bécot, which promote their wines in a dynamic and different way. The quality of the wine is constantly improving. The 2022 vintage is clearly a new milestone in the history of Grand Mayne.  This particularly successful vintage is praised by the international press, like Antonio Galloni who has rated the wine 94-96 points, saying, 'It's a superb Grand Mayne in the making'.
