Product Description

St Emilion Grand Cru Class‚

Chƒteau Grand Mayne's vineyard is located to the west of Saint Emilion, at the foot of the plateau, in the centre of the commune. It has an exceptional altitude of 55 metres above sea level and is planted on the hillside and at the foot of the slope facing south-west. The soils are a mix of clay-limestone on the slopes with old sand over clay at the foot of the hill.

The grape varieties planted are 76% Merlots, 13% Cabernets Franc and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, the vines having an average age of 30 years.

The average yield from the vines is 35 hectolitres per hectare, entirely manual harvesting, with collection in 50 litre wooden tubs. The grapes are hand sorted in the vineyard and in the winery where ten people are employed just tio sort the grapes. It is not often that wineries pay such attention to detail.

Vinification has taken place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats since 1973 but since 2000, some of the wine has fermented in temperature controlled wooden vats. After fermentation, the wine is transferred into new barrels, in a new, air-conditioned barrel cellar at 22øC where it is aged for 18 to 24 months in barrels (80% to 100% of new barrels depending on the grape varieties and on the vintage)

A sweet, creamy black raspberry nose leads to a powerful but elegant fruit with hints of smoke and toasty oak. Beautifully balanced with layer upon layer of richness well integrated with acidity and tannin. Drinking well now but will remain on course for another six or seven years.
