Château Franc Mayne - 2011

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

« The robe has a very pretty intense ruby red hue and still has a beautiful brilliance.
The first nose is still a little marked by the wood and then with agitation, it opens with notes of fresh red fruits, pink berries and spices. The palate is still a little tight but offers a nice balance. It reveals a harmonious tannic structure and a complex aromatic palette of fruit and subtle woodiness. A wine that currently needs to be decanted to be fully appreciated but which is entering an optimal tasting phase that holds great promises for the years to come. »
