Chateau Grand Mayne Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2020
VM96: The 2020 Franc Mayne is dense, resonant and beautifully explosive in theglass. Sumptuous dark red/purplish fruit, rose petals, mint and lavender all saturate the palate. This heady Saint-Émilion really delivers the goods. There's plenty of energy and tension to balance the more forward nature of the Merlot. Superb.
WA93-95: Opaque purple-black in color, the 2020 Grand Mayne slowly unfurls in the glass to reveal gorgeous notions of ripe black plums, dark chocolate-covered cherries and blackberry pie, plus hints of licorice, cracked black pepper and unsmoked cigars with a touch of tree bark. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of rich black fruits, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and beautifully perfumed.
JD91-93: Always a solid wine, the 2020 Château Grand Mayne should be outstanding, if not even better. Offering a medium to full-bodied, ripe, textured style as well as lots of plum and darker fruits, it has terrific purity, building tannins, and a great mid-palate. I was able to taste this from multiple bottles, all showing a good mix of richness and freshness, and if anything, I’m being conservative with the rating.
