Tasting Note:

La Grande Maye hails from the humble hills of Castillon, yet it really is a classy little number that possesses real aging potential. Cedric kindly opened a magnum of the 1986, which is still showing plenty of primary fruit and vigour. The 2016 is produced from 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
