Well-known Bordeaux producer – value-for-money – crowd-pleaser – party wine

Château Mayne Graves

Chateau Mayne Graves is a satellite project of the famous Guimberteau family, who have managed a variety of vineyards on the Right Bank in Bordeaux for over a century. The team fell in love with the gravel-based terroir in this area north of Pomerol and decided to plant vines there in 2002. Since producing their first vintage in 2004, Claude Guimberteau and his winemaking team have excelled in releasing traditional, value-for-money clarets that are extremely well-balanced and offer a great introduction to classical Bordeaux.

Soft tannins and a lot of plum and blackcurrant jam flavours, hint of cinnamon on the finish.

Chilled or not...?

This is a very decent Bordeaux at this price tag. Don’t be fooled by the ‘jam’ reference in the description – there’s no sweetness. This wine is as dry as it gets. Tastes a bit like leather, actually, in a good way, if that’s your preference. Now, the jury is still out there regarding the temperature to enjoy this at. ’Servi frais’ (’serve chilled’) is what it says on the bottle. But when we were drinking this in a cold environment, sitting around a Scottish campfire trying to ignore the 4 degrees of air temperature around us, the wine did just feel a bit too chilly. Letting it sit by the fire definitely helped. In other words, letting this wine develop its flavour at room temperature is what I’d go for, unless you’re in a hotter climate. Regardless, we shall re-order.
