Ch Grand Mayne 2022
Grand Cru Classé
€ 45.38/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 94-96/100
The 2022 Grand Mayne is a fabulous example of the year. Rich and
radiant, it offers up sweet red cherry/plum fruit, spice, graphite, mocha,
dried flowers and a kiss of sweet French oak. This generous, plush SaintÉmilion deftly marries textural richness with energy as it shows off the
unique balance that makes the best wines of this vintage so alluring. There
is a bit of new oak that needs to integrate, but there is more than enough
depth for that to happen. The 2022 is beautifully put together and poised
in the early going. It’s a superb Grand Mayne in the making.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91-93/100
The 2022 Grand Mayne offers up generous aromas of sweet berry fruit, spices, espresso roast and new oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy palate with a broad, velvety attack and a deep core of fruit framed by powdery tannins that assert themselves on the youthfully chewy finish. This is a ripe, gourmand Saint-Émilion that represents a generous but balanced interpretation of the vintage. If its élevage remains in the background by the time it’s in bottle, it may make my review look conservative.
