Château Franc Mayne - 2004

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

« With a beautiful red colour and intense brick reflections, this wine offers a nose that begins to evolve towards notes of undergrowth, tobacco and then aromas of red fruit paste. The woodland is now perfectly integrated.

The palate, of an extreme roundness, progresses towards a still very dense finish and a remarkable freshness.
Combining the silky tannins, the aromatic complexity of cooked fruits and humus and ending with a slightly camphorated touch, this 2004 Franc Mayne reaches the age of maturity. A great tasting experience! »
