PRE-ARRIVAL Chateau Grand Mayne St-Emilion 2018 Grand Cru Classe


Grand Mayne has been a Chateau I’ve been following for years. The wines regularly offer quality beyond the price. And they age well.

NOTE: Grand Mayne 2018 is due to arrive in 2021.

Grand Mayne is at the foot of the limestone plateau of St-Emilion. The extra clay in the vineyard helps add a richness of fruit that becomes evident when you taste the wines. There is about 17 hectare of vines devoted to 76% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon.


With approximately 5400 hectares planted it is a vast appellation with a few distinct personalities. Like the famous neighbour Pomerol, the wines are Merlot dominant and offer the silk, perfume and charm that Merlot can give. The best of the wines will live as long as, if not longer than most Left Bank wines and often cost two or three times more.


It gets a tough time most of the places it is grown. But in Pomerol and Saint-Emilion Merlot not only dominates but makes some of the best wines in the world. Perfume, silky and plush. Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon season the wines with structure and acid but in some places, like Petrus, they are almost not needed.


Quality Red Bordeaux in 2018 will be deeply coloured, aromatically complex, and opulent in the mouth. While it sounds like they will be ready to go from day one, most experts are predicting this is a vintage for long-term cellaring. Think 30 years or more!  It wasn’t the best start to the vintage so quality is not uniform. Look for Northern Medoc, Margaux, Pomerol and Saint-Emilion.
