2019 Chateau Grand Mayne Pre-Arrival Offer
The 2019 Grand Mayne takes its time to unfold in the glass, eventually delivering enticing and very pure red berry fruit, beautifully defined and less exuberant than some of the vintages I was tasting 15-20 years ago. There is a sense of terroir and mineralité in situ. The palate is saline on the entry, immediately grabbing your attention thanks to unbridled freshness and vivacity. Slightly grainy in texture, the umami sensation that glides towards a very precise and natural finish is wonderful here. Grand Mayne has been on an upward swing in recent vintages and this is another outstanding wine from Jean-Antoine Nony.
Neal Martin - Vinous
The clay-limestone soils here are cool, which often means the tannins are fairly bristling in their youth, and it takes its time to unravel in the bottle before drinking. There is an excellent structure and highly attractive smoked liquorice and toffee notes when you sit with it long enough for the fruit-acid-tannin combination to soften up. Good quality and enjoyable.
Jane Anson - Decanter
Quite floral, you also find notes of licorice, espresso and earthy nuances to accompany all that beautiful, ripe, red fruit. Soft, silky and refined, this elegant, medium-bodied charmer will be better with 5-7 years in the cellar and should age and evolve for another 2 decades after that.
