Domaine Du Grand Mayne
One of the many benefits of us being in the little known Cotes de Duras is that we can’t charge the high prices of our neighbours in Bordeaux despite the fact that we think our wines are as good if not better.
Nowhere is that more evident than in our Reserve oaked red. Fermented in stainless steal tanks then aged for 12 months in French oak. ¼ was new to ensure that we didn’t overpower the natural fruitiness of the wine.
Owned by a community of over 600 of its customers, the vineyards of Domaine du Grand Mayne are based in the beautiful countryside of the Côtes de Duras. We make award-winning wines by combining our wine making heritage with innovation and passion.
