Winemakers Note

A REAL GEM TO DISCOVER ! It was a case of love at first site that launched a new chapter in the history of Château Franc Mayne. Seduced by the charm of this property surrounded by vines and the promise of a wine that could be improved, the Savare family took over the reins in 2018. Having already held investments in Bordeaux’s vineyards for more than 20 years, they have found the same commitment, values and expertise that are crucial in their own industry. This triptych enabled the family company to become a world leader in fiduciary printing. Undertaking the same quest for excellence, the family has laid the foundations for a long-term commitment to this Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé. Personally involved, the new owners bring fresh drive and energy which has its origins in a two-fold motivation: to create a wine with a strong personality that reflects the richness of the terroir, and to maintain the property as a unique setting where one can experience the essence of the world of wine. Key Points - In organic conversion since 2019 - Very limited production, around 25 000 bottles - In constant evolution for the past 20 years - Good quality wine and well rated Surface in production 5.68 ha Soil Limstone plateau, hillside, clays, sands on clays Yield 38 hl/ha Ageing 50% new barrels - 50% amphoras, foudres and one-wine barrels Tasting note ” This wine has a deep purple color. The nose is rich and precise with floral notes of iris, red fruits, ginger with a hint of minerality. The palate is energic and deep. With a tight, dense, and silky tannic structure, this wine has a remarkable fresh and tense length for this pure Merlot. We found the aromatic palette of the nose mixed with the greediness of sweet notes of licorice and cacao beans.” Sophie Mage, Technical Manager
