Château Franc Mayne - 2000

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The harvest potential is magnificent and thanks to a very beautiful flowering the bunches are homogeneous. Leaf thinning and green harvesting allow us to obtain the best conditions of maturation.
After a magnificent month of August, it is only on 18/09 when our tannins are ripe, that we will harvest our most sandy plots at the foot of the hillside. The good weather is now, we continue serenely by the Coast on the 22/09 to finish by the limestone plateau on the 29/09 under a radiant sun.

Thanks to a magnificent structure, 2000 is exceptional by its alliance of power and finesse, by its fatness and fruitiness.
