Chateau Grand Mayne Saint-Emilion 2018 94pts
94 Points Vinous Media
The 2018 Grand Mayne keeps everything under wraps on the nose, at least for the first 60 minutes, then it blossoms to offer gorgeous pure blackberry, briary, crushed stone and light rose petal aromas. The new oak is beautifully integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, superb acidity, gentle grip and an almost symmetrical finish of laser-like precision. An outstanding Grand Mayne, certainly one of the finest in recent years.
93 Points Wine Advocate
The 2018 Grand Mayne is deep garnet-purple colored and gives up a nose of baked blackberries, prunes and raisin cake with touches of dusty soil, sauteed herbs and fungi. Fulle and concentrated, with a firm, chewy texture, it delivers a spicy finish
93 Points Wine Enthusiast
A rich, perfumed wine, this has ripe black-fruit and vanilla flavors. Dense tannins from both from the wood and the fruit add spice and smokiness to this full wine. The firmness needs to soften into the fruit.
92 Points Decanter
Powerful, confident, liquorice and black cherry, this is a big-shouldered wine as it was en primeur. It's not yet softening to fully release the tight fruits, but this has a ton of promise
