2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion

SKU #1198330 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fabulous aromas of crushed blueberries and minerals with flowers follow through to a full body, with solid fruit and tannin structure and a long, long finish. Very intense. Better than 2009. Try in 2017. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This delivers the profile of the vintage, with spice-infused raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit coursing along nicely, followed by delineated anise and spice notes, all carried by a racy graphite spine. Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM, Web-2013) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

One of our best-selling Bordeaux...when we can keep it in stock. 2010 was a remarkable vintage in Bordeaux and this is one of our favorite value highlights. Franc Mayne is not a big name - it rarely sees shelves at US retailers and when it does you might often find it well into the $40s. Most of that is due to the relatively limited production - only 1400 cases are made every year - a level akin to the elusive and elite of St. Emilion.

An absolute steal here. Normally $50 a bottle.These last 90 cases will sell out quickly. We sold the first 100 in two weeks last year. Blackberry aromas and cherry flavors. Super wine to cellar a few years or decant one hour. Just tasted August 2017-All fruit and very little tannin. Amazingly forward for a 2010.
Drink from 2017 to 2025

The 2010 Franc Mayne is a flashy, dark, rich, powerful wine that drinks great today. When we were tasting it, a colleague suggested that it tasted like a fancy Napa Cabernet, and I agree... All you would need to do is add $100 to the price tag! If you like dense, dark red wine, this is a deal not to be missed.

This super value from a spectacular vintage has a fat middle of creamy boysenberry fruit, dark chocolate, spice and a glycerin-like texture right through to the toasty vanilla-tinged finish. There is plenty of structure underneath the masses of fruit and oak flavors, yet this is quite easy to drink.
