2016 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1397253 93 points Wine Spectator

 Sleek and driven in feel, showing a juicy beam of cassis, raspberry and blackberry notes accented with light anise and apple wood accents. Features subtle grip through the finish, with a brambly edge adding extra texture and energy. Yum. (JM)  (3/2019)

92 points James Suckling

 A dense and fruity red with noteworthy focus, form and tension. Full-bodied, very tight and focused. Lightly angular tannins at the end with a salty undertone. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Better in 2022.  (2/2019)

92 points Vinous

 The 2016 Franc Mayne is creamy and voluptuous in the glass, with striking balance and tons of persistence. Mocha, dark fruit, orange peel and spice add aromatic nuance, but it is the wine's feel and textural finesse that stand out most. This is an especially flamboyant style, but it all works beautifully.

90 points Decanter

 Owned by Griet Van Malderen and Hervé Laviale at the time, this estate was bought in 2018 by French businessman Jean-Pierre Savare. The 2016 is knitted together tightly right now, but the quality of the black fruit is clear and the tannins are supportive rather than constricting, despite being extremely tight and closed. This needs time in the glass. 50% new oak. 40hl/ha yield from 5.8ha. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040 (JA)  (10/2018)

K&L Notes

91+ points, Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2016 Franc-Mayne offers plush red cherries and plum on the nose, and hints of hoisin develop in the glass. Very precocious and opulent, just as it showed from barrel. The smooth, fresh palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin and a touch of soy toward the finish, which needs a little more length – hence my prudent score." (01/2019)
