Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

A wine with plenty of compact fruit and backbone.Good ruby color. Plenty of chocolate and berry character on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of silky tannins and a long, fresh finish. Will continue to improve. Drink now or hold. --1990 Bordeaux retrospective.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

Both the 1989 and 1990 vintages performed up to the quality I expected. The 1990 shares the same impressively saturated color, along with a black-cherry, mineral, smoky component, with a dash of roasted herbs. Spicy, rich, long, and massive in the mouth, it is full-bodied, sweet, jammy, and capable of lasting for 12-15+ years. I have not seen any offerings of this wine in retailers' catalogues, but I suspect the price is still realistic given the fact that much of the wine world still does not realize how excellent the wines of Grand-Mayne have become.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
