2014 Château Grand Mayne  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Medium-bodied, classically styled, forward, early-drinking wine with a focus on its floral, spice, red fruit, herb and thyme character. The finish is bright, fresh and herbal. You can drink this now, or wait a few years. This will probably not make old bones. I'd opt for drinking it over the next 12-15 years.

When to Drink Chateau Grand Mayne, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Grand Mayne is better with at least 5-8 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Grand Mayne is best enjoyed in the first 6-25 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for 1-2 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Serving Chateau Grand Mayne with Wine and Food Pairings

Chateau Grand Mayne is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Grand Mayne is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Grand Mayne is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
