The 2011 Grand-Mayne is a Bordeaux Blend from Saint Emilion, Bordeaux, France. This red wine, produced by Grand-Mayne, is distinguished by its 14.5% alcohol content and showcases a notable complexity and structure, as highlighted by leading wine reviewers.

Wine Spectator gave this vintage a score of 90, noting its "good energy" and dynamic flavor profile. The review describes the wine as having "dark bramble, raspberry ganache and linzer torte notes pumping along," which are "lined with anise and carrying through a nicely structured finish." The wine's bright and well-integrated acidity is emphasized, with a recommendation to enjoy this wine starting from 2016 and continuing through 2025.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded the 2011 Grand-Mayne a slightly higher score of 91. Robert M. Parker, Jr., described it as "another excellent to outstanding effort from the Nony family." He noted the wine's "beautifully sweet raspberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with crushed rock-like notes as well as a jammy character," which he found unusual for this vintage. Parker highlighted the medium to full-bodied nature of the wine, its complete mouthfeel, and sweet but moderate tannins. He suggests that this wine can be enjoyed in the near term or cellared for 12-15 years.

Both reviews agree on the wine's excellent structure and balance, with Wine Spectator and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate both recognizing its potential for aging. The 2011 Grand-Mayne offers a rich and layered experience, with a combination of fruit-forward notes and a solid acidic backbone, making it a versatile choice for both immediate enjoyment and extended cellaring.
