1998 Chateau Grand Mayne Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) 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.

Winemaker's Notes

Absolutely stunning Bordeaux, a tour de force from the 1998 vintage and perhaps the greatest Grand Mayne ever. A great value considering the inflated prices for many of the 2000's. Displays aromatics of black raspberries, minerals, licorice, and vanillin. In the mouth, the wine has taken on more tannin than it revealed early last spring, but it still possesses copious quantities of black fruits, medium body, and a pure, clean rich finish.Grand Mayne 1998 is in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 wines...
