Deep plum this is concentrated on the nose with a hint of bacon fat. A cool textured palate here, oaky with damson on the finish. It is showing extraction on the finish as always at Grand Mayne, needs a plenty of bottle age compared to some. Oaky.

Rating : 90-92/100

Blackish crimson. Lots of ripe black fruits plus a bit of freshness. Quite zesty and appealing with a beginning, middle and end. Really quite successful and punchy. Lightly sandpapery tannins but long and well balanced. Really quite luscious. With an appetising saltiness on the end.

Rating : 17/20

The 2016 Grand-Pontet is powerful and dense, but also a bit tough around the edges because of the heavy extraction and oak. It will be interesting to see if the 2016 comes together a bit more fully over its aging. Today, the dark fruit and oak torrefaction signatures dominate the wine's balance. Tasted two times.

Rating : 88-91/100

The 2016 Grand-Mayne is a very different wine from those of old when sometimes it could be pushed too much in the winery. Certainly, the addition of Louis Mitjavile, François's son, has had a positive impact upon Grand-Mayne in the last two or three years. This is very elegant and refined, displaying more terroir characteristics with a gorgeous herbal lift, almost as if owner Jean-Antoine Nony had used some stems! The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, almost Pomerol-like in style with more mineralité and refinement on the finish. This is a new style of Grand-Mayne, and frankly, it is one of the best I have tasted from this Saint Emilion estate.

Rating : 94-96/100
