Tasting Note RP 90-92/100 One of my favorite “under the radar” St.-Emilion estates (the 1998 is spectacular), the full-bodied, impressively well-endowed, opaque purple-colored 2012 Grand-Mayne offers up scents of blueberries, crushed rocks, spring flowers, vanilla and black raspberries. It is a blue fruit-dominated wine with lots of body, sweet tannin and hedonistic, almost primordial appeal because of its exuberant glycerin, texture and fullness. WS 91/100 Very polished, with a flattering feel up front and lots of ripe plum, blackberry paste and blueberry reduction notes at the core. Shows some serious grip on the back end, with ganache and graphite accents joining a brambly hint on the finish. This should stretch out in the cellar as both sides come together. Best from 2017 through 2026. NM 92-94/100 The 2012 is a blend 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, picked from 9th October until 20th October. There is much more restraint on the nose compared to recent vintages with superb delineation and focus. A more classic Grand Mayne in the offing? The palate is very well balanced with silky smooth tannins, very fine acidity and a sophisticated, elegant finish with beautifully integrated oak.
