Notes of blackcurrants, plums, chocolate, and lead pencil emerge from the ripe, sexy styled 2015 Château Grand Mayne. This full-bodied, opulent, beautifully concentrated 2015 hits the palate with loads of fruit and texture, yet stays balanced, has terrific purity of fruit, and ripe tannin. I was only able to taste this one time, but wow, what a wine. It should be at its best from 2020-2035.
The 2015 Grand Mayne has a candied bouquet with high-toned red cherry, crème de cassis and mulberry aromas, well defined and generous with flecks of dark chocolate developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and very well judged acidity. I appreciate the focus and freshness in this Saint-Émilion, nicely poised with a persistent, quite mineral finish. A superb wine from Jean-Antoine Nony. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (NM)
The 2015 Grand Mayne is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with an earthy nose of damp soil and fungi with a core of red and black plums, black berries and dried herbs. The full-bodied mouth is rich and earthy with a firm structure and plenty of freshness, finishing long. Drink through 2042. (LPB)
The 2015 Grand Mayne is powerful, ample and racy, with notable textural breadth and resonance. Super-riper red cherry, tobacco, mint, orange peel and spice all develop in the glass. Forward and sumptuous, as it was from barrel, Grand Mayne is gorgeous today. Michel Rolland and Louis Mitjaville consult. (AG)
A tight and silky red with berry, chocolate and black-tea character. Full-bodied, tight and integrated. Fresh finish. Drink in 2020.
This huge wine seems to revel in its rich and powerful fruits. It has a serious side as well, coming from dark tannins, black chocolate and wood-aging flavors. If it seems extracted at this stage, that fruit will come to balance the wine as it matures further. Drink from 2024. (RV)
