Château Grand-Mayne is a St-Emilion Grand Cru Classé property located north-west of the town of St-Emilion. Its handsome château was built in 1767 and since 1934 has been owned and run by the Nony family - Jean-Pierre Nony has been at the helm since 1975.
Grand Mayne has 19 hectares of vineyards, superbly sited on the edge of a limestone plateau, where the soils are rich in clay, limestone and iron. The wine is a blend of Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled-stainless steel vats and the wine is aged in oak barriques (70% new) for 18 months.
The ubiquitous Michel Rolland is a consultant and, not surprisingly, Grand Mayne produces a deeply-coloured, richly aromatic wine which is full-bodied and lush on the palate, displaying cassis, mineral and liquorice notes with hints of vanilla and oriental spices.
