1995 Grand Mayne, St-Emilion

SKU #110207 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 An unqualified sleeper of the vintage, the opaque purple-colored 1995 Grand-Mayne displays a sweet, creamy, black raspberry-scented nose with subtle notes of smoky, toasty oak. Both powerful and elegant, this wine exhibits layers of richness, nicely integrated acidity and tannin, and an impressive full-bodied, long finish. This offering should be drinkable early, and keep for over a decade. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2013.  (2/ 1998)

90 points Wine Spectator

 In-your-face aromas of toasted oak, ripe berries and chocolate. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and a long, smoke and berry finish. Absolutely moreish. Best from 2002 through 2006.  (9/ 1998)

K&L Notes

4 out of 5 Stars from Decanter: "Good structure and grip and very good length. Will develop very well." Add Grand Mayne to your list of Chateaux to follow. About 1/2 kilometer from Angelus, this St. Emilion Chateau has a history going back to 1767.

This was my favorite of the tasting and I enjoyed it that evening with dinner. The nose still showed oak spice, cola, and ripe plum. The elegant mouth feel was fully integrated with rich ripe plum, cola, mocha and spice leading to a long finish filled with mocha and ripe fruit. This is a lovely wine.

Wow, this wine is a super Right Bank with lush Merlot black fruit on the nose and palate, toasted oak, ripe berries, chocolate flavors and no hard edges. A great, full-bodied, lush wine with smoky notes from a great Merlot vintage. 92+ points for sure.
