Chateau Grand-Mayne 2008
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
A sleeper of the vintage, this impressive, full-bodied, surprisingly concentrated 2008 offers an opaque ruby/purple color as well as a glorious perfume of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blueberry liqueur and cassis. Full-bodied and impressively broad and savory with silky tannins, it is an unqualified success in the vintage. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Ripe and deep, with damson plum, black currant and linzer torte fruit aromas and flavors caressed by lush, spice-infused toast. The long finish is filled with licorice and graphite.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
