St.-Emilion, Grand-Mayne's 2011 reveals a dense blue/purple color in addition to abundant aromas of raspberries, black currants, licorice and toasty oak. With moderate, sweet, well-integrated tannin, decent acidity and a heady, long finish, it can be drunk over the next 10-15 years.

This spicy wine, aged in new wood, is rich and full with blackberry flavors. It’s opulent in texture with layers of new oak that reverberate through the wine. Barrel Sample:91-93 Points

This is very intense for the vintage with blueberry, light coffee and wet earth character. Full body, silky and polished tannins and a long, long finish. Excellent. Better in 2018.
92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of my favorite "under the radar" St.-Emilion estates (the 1998 is spectacular), the full-bodied, impressively well-endowed, opaque purple-colored 2012 Grand-Mayne offers up scents of blueberries, crushed rocks, spring flowers, vanilla and black raspberries. It is a blue fruit-dominated wine with lots of body, sweet tannin and hedonistic, almost primordial appeal because of its exuberant glycerin, texture and fullness.
91 Wine Spectator
Very polished, with a flattering feel up front and lots of ripe plum, blackberry paste and blueberry reduction notes at the core. Shows some serious grip on the back end, with ganache and graphite accents joining a brambly hint on the finish. This should stretch out in the cellar as both sides come together. Best from 2017 through 2026.
