Details

Château Franc Mayne was bought by AXA-Millésimes in 1984 from the nephew of a Libourne négociant by the name of Theillasoubre, who had owned it for some years, and died with no descendants. In June 1996, the château was sold to a Belgian entrepreneur named Georgy Fourcroy.[1]

Since 2005 Château Franc Mayne has been owned by Griet & Hervé Laviale. There have been major renovations both in the main house and the wine making facilities, with a new vat house containing wooden and stainless steel vats. The property also comprises 2 hectares of underground quarries.

Smoke, licorice, stone and fresh plum scents pair well with the silky, soft, sweet cherry, mid palate with a smooth tannin finish. This vintage is almost a collectors item and hard to find in Japan.
