Find Chateau Grand Mayne prices and retail availability.

Original Tasting and Review:

By way of background: Chateau Grand Mayne, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France, is a mix of 80% merlot, 15% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon for 2007, aged about a year and a half in 75% new oak barrels.

In the glass: Chateau Grand Mayne shows as medium-deep red in the glass.

On the nose: Poured with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this is definitely old world, showing more forest than fruit.

On the palate: The palate is a slightly funky, slightly cheese-infused fruit.

And the wrap-up: The finish is even and full.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale. I'd try it again.
