Chateau Mayne-Vieil

Fronsac



DRY & ELEGANT


The quality is exceptionally stable. The wine has the meaty juiciness of the Merlot grape with notes of cherries, blackberries, mulberries and plum, but also Bordeaux's firm structure with fine-grained tannins and a little laced soil. The wine is almost always 100% Merlot. (1-2% Cabernet Franc may occur). The wine is stored for 18 months, partly on oak barrel, partly in tank, depending on the vintage. The oak tree must be felt but not dominate.


TØR & ELEGANT


Kvaliteten er enestående stabil. Vinen har Merlotdruens kødfulde saftighed med noter af kirsebær, solbær, multebær og blomme, men også Bordeaux's faste struktur med fintkornede tanniner og en lille snert jordbund.

Vinen er næsten altid 100% Merlot. (1-2% Cabernet Franc kan forekomme). Vinen lagres 18 mdr., delvist på egefad, delvist i tank, afhængigt af årgangen. Egetræet må fornemmes men ikke dominere.

ABOUT THE WINERY


CHATEAU MAYNE-VIEIL


Mayne-Vieil is located north-northwest of the port city of Libourne overlooking Pomerol. The "old gentleman's seat" Mayne-Vieil has cellars dating back to the 1600s, and the current buildings dates from 1860. The Sèze family acquired the property in 1918, and parcels have now been purchased, so the vineyard now has 32 acres.


Mayne-Vieil ligger højt nord-nordvest for havnebyen Libourne med udsigt ned mod Pomerol. "Det gamle herresæde" Mayne-Vieil har kældre fra 1600-tallet, og nuværende bygninger er fra 1860. Sèze familien erhvervede ejendommen i 1918, og der er efterhånden tilkøbt parceller, så vinarealet nu er 32 hektar.
