Château Franc Mayne, St-Emilion Grand Cru Classé 2012

The 6 hectares of 30 year old vines on this right bank estate are planted mainly to Merlot with about 10% of Cabernet Franc. This classic, well-priced claret has weathered well, showing savoury leather, cedar, oak and spice flavours along with ripe plum fruit. It has a few years in it yet, but is nice mature drinking now.
