Chateau Mayne Blanc Lussac Saint Emilion 2015

Chateau Maybe Blanc from Lussac saint Emilion has generous berried fruits are accompanied by a blueberry character and rich, dark chocolate notes. Stylish and deliciously approachable with a soft and plump finish.

Producer Note - The immaculate Château Mayne Blanc covers 21 hectares of vines, including four hectares of Bordeaux rouge and 17 hectares in the appellation of Lussac-Saint- émilion. The château has received significant investment and renovation in the vineyard and cellars by the current owner who purchased the property from the family who had previously owned the Château for three generations. They cultivate the vines sustainably and work closely alongside innovative winemaker Ludovic Labarrere, who vinifies using egg shaped fermenters and produces wines which are the quintessential expression of the Lussac St Emilion terroir.

Vintage - 2015 has been hailed as an excellent vintage in Bordeaux. Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was slightly cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the grapes to reach full maturity. The wines have power and precision, particularly from the right bank appellations and many outstanding wines have been made from lesser appellations.

Vineyard - Lussac Saint-Emilion is the most northerly of the satellites of the larger Saint-Emilion appellation, which is located in the right bank Libournais district of Bordeaux. The Château Mayne Blanc's vineyard is situated at the highest elevation of Lussac SaintEmilion, atop clay and silty soils which impart softness to the wines. The vines are sustainably cultivated, with grass sown between the vine rows in order to stabilise the soil and decompress it, sending the vine's roots deep into the soils. The yields are carefully controlled in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries.

Winemaking - The grapes were meticulously sorted and carefully destemmed; ensuring the grapes were not damaged and the berries remained whole. They were slowly fermented in concrete tanks so all components from the skins were extracted to the desired level. Fermentation lasted for between three to four weeks. 50% of the wine was matured for 12 to 16 months, in French oak barrels of which approximately 10% was new oak.

Tasting Note - Plump berried fruits are accompanied by a blueberry character and rich, dark chocolate notes. Stylish and deliciously approachable with soft tannins and a fresh finish.

Serving Suggestion - Grilled red meats, game or hard cheese.

Grapes - Merlot 80%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
