Grand Mayne 2015
The 2015 Grand Mayne has a candied bouquet with high-toned red cherry, crème de cassis and mulberry aromas, well defined and generous with flecks of dark chocolate developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and very well judged acidity. I appreciate the focus and freshness in this Saint-Émilion, nicely poised with a persistent, quite mineral finish. A superb wine from Jean-Antoine Nony. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

The 2015 Grand Mayne has an exemplary bouquet, one decidedly less extravagant than previous vintages, with blackberry, raspberry, cedar and asphalt aromas gently wafting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and tensile. I love the shimmering black fruit here laced with pencil lead and spice, while the finish is much more focused and refined than vintages ten years earlier. Superb.

The 2015 Grand Mayne is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with an earthy nose of damp soil and fungi with a core of red and black plums, black berries and dried herbs. The full-bodied mouth is rich and earthy with a firm structure and plenty of freshness, finishing long.

The 2015 Grand Mayne is powerful, ample and racy, with notable textural breadth and resonance. Super-riper red cherry, tobacco, mint, orange peel and spice all develop in the glass. Forward and sumptuous, as it was from barrel, Grand Mayne is gorgeous today. Michel Rolland and Louis Mitjaville consult.
