£60.00

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
We all need a “Monday evening bottle of wine” in our lives. One that is reliable, easily approachable, very affordable and very drinkable! Although inexpensive, a wine for everyday drinking still needs to be good and made by real people who care  rather than factory made supermarket plonk.
So welcome to Domaine du Grand Mayne ( located in Cotes de Duras a few miles away from the Bordeaux appellation border) for that perfect “Monday evening bottle”. So perfect that Tony is one of around 900 shareholders that own the vineyard and he  has been happily drinking their wines for many years.
This Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon blend is an artisan product with a supermarket price tag. Wonderfully fragrant with aromas of ripe plumsand black cherries over dark berry fruit flavours. Lots of juicy ripe fruits and nicely balanced with silky soft tannins. Very easy to drink yet complex and elegant. – 15% of the wine is aged in oak barrels to give added finesse and length, which is extremely rare at these sort of prices. This vintaage is so good that it has been awarded a Star in the wine industry bible, the 2021 Guide Hachette !  It goes well with all tradittional red wine dishes but also works as a great aperitif when slightly chilled.  Impossible not to enjoy especially at only £10 per bottle!
