1996 Grand Mayne

Grand Mayne

flagBordeaux / France

I had this wine three times from bottle, rating it 88 once and 89 twice. I decided to go with the more conservative rating given the wine's backward style. Grand Mayne is one of St.-Emilion's best-run properties. Aside from a couple of hiccups in the early nineties, the quality has been consistently excellent, often outstanding. The 1996 Grand Mayne exhibits a dense purple color, and an attractive nose of white flowers, sweet blackberries, cherries, minerals, and pain grille. It is medium to full-bodied, with excellent depth, an elegant personality, and a clean, mineral-like finish with moderate tannin. New oak is noticeable in the flavors. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2014. Apr 1999, www.robertparker.com
