Château Grand Mayne 2022 released En Primeur

  • Château Grand Mayne 2022 has been released at £390 per 12×75.
  • Bon vin’, said Neal Martin who rated it 93-95 points.
  • Buyers looking for value might want to consider the 2018, 2019 and 2020 vintages.

As part of this year’s Bordeaux En Primeur campaign, Château Grand Mayne 2022 has been released at €32 per bottle ex-négociant, up 15.9% on the 2021 release (€27.60).

It is being released with a recommended retail price of £390 per 12×75 (€37.50, CHF 38.00, £32.50, HK$314.00, $45.00 per bottle) up 18.2% on the 2021’s opening price (£330 per 12×75).

Based on today’s release, buyers have several opportunities to find value among back-vintages.

Critics’ scores

Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 93-95 points, adding that although the ‘new oak is prominent at the moment,’ there is ‘sufficient fruit to soak that up.’

‘Balanced but fully charged wine’, said Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux) who rated the wine at 93 points. She deems the 2022 Grand Mayne ‘impressive, with ageing ability’.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Independent) scored the wine at a range of 92-94 points, lauding the slow parade of ‘black cherries, blueberry pie, and sassafras’ that ‘slowly emerge from the glass’.

Fair Value analysis

There is no significant correlation between Grand Mayne Market Prices and Neal Martin scores – the chosen critic for Liv-ex’s ‘Fair Value’ methodology.

Based on the chart above, buyers looking for value in back vintages might want to consider the 2019 vintage. The wine received 95 points from Neal Martin (Vinous) and is available at a Market Price of £300 per 12×75, a discount of 23.1% to today’s release.

The 2018 and 2020 might also be of interest. Both scored 94 points from Neal Martin and are available at a discount of 23.6% and 25.6% to today’s release.

The lower-scoring 2014, 2016 and 2021 might also be of interest.
