Château Franc Mayne - 2012

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

« With an intense and brilliant garnet red colour, this Franc Mayne 2012 opens on an already very expressive first nose. It has a beautiful depth, combining notes of red fruits and cherry pit with a controlled and well-melted woodiness. The attack is supple, the mid-palate is quite ample and the finish densifies on tannins that are still a little tight. The aroma is reminiscent of the nose with hints of Kirsch, toasted wood and slightly smoky, evolving towards a refreshing liquorice flavour that stretches the finish. A gourmet wine that will continue to mature over time. »
