Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Grand Mayne has a sensual, pure bouquet of lush crushed strawberry fruit mixed with raspberry and rose petals. The oak is very well integrated here, just oozing class. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, a fine bead of acidity and a smooth, velvety finish that beckons you back for another sip. This is a triumph, one of the best that Jean-Antoine Nony has overseen." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (January, 2019), Rating: 94, Drink: 2022-2045

"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." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (11/30/2018, Interim Issue), Rating: 94, Drink from: 2020-2034 

"The 2016 Grand-Mayne is a very different wine from those of old when sometimes it could be pushed too much in the winery. Certainly, the addition of Louis Mitjavile, François's son, has had a positive impact upon Grand-Mayne in the last two or three years. This is very elegant and refined, displaying more terroir characteristics with a gorgeous herbal lift, almost as if owner Jean-Antoine Nony had used some stems! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, almost Pomerol-like in style with more mineralité and refinement on the finish. This is a new style of Grand-Mayne, and frankly, it is one of the best I have tasted from this Saint Emilion estate." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/28/2017, Issue 230),Ratings: 94-96, Drink: 2022-2045
