2016 Reserve Red, Grand Mayne, Cotes de Duras, France
This Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend is quite possibly one of GM’s best wines to date from a great vintage. Red and black fruit aromas. On the palate the ripe Merlot combines beautifully with a backbone of Cabernet all wrapped in ripe tannin and subtle oak. Rich yet elegant. Reminiscent of Cru Bourgeois claret at a much higher price it’s great now but will improve for many years to come.
Domaine du Grand Mayne red wine can be enjoyed within 12 months of the vintage, although it will keep for many years.
