Chateau Grand-Mayne 1990
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Both the 1989 and 1990 vintages performed up to the quality I expected. The 1990 shares the same impressively saturated color, along with a black-cherry, mineral, smoky component, with a dash of roasted herbs. Spicy, rich, long, and massive in the mouth, it is full-bodied, sweet, jammy, and capable of lasting for 12-15+ years. I have not seen any offerings of this wine in retailers' catalogues, but I suspect the price is still realistic given the fact that much of the wine world still does not realize how excellent the wines of Grand-Mayne have become.

A wine with plenty of compact fruit and backbone.Good ruby color. Plenty of chocolate and berrycharacter on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots ofsilky tannins and a long, fresh finish. Willcontinue to improve.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
