Winemaker Notes

Bright and intense red. Aromas of red fruits, spice, and wood. Supple, round and long on the palate. The aromas are reflected on the palate with notes of red fruits, spices, and oak.

Pair with red meat and cheeses

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
With ripe Merlot dominating this fine, blackberry flavored wine, it is fruity and rich. The acidity gives a crisper edge to the wine while the tannins come from a dry core. It is a wine in progress, full of potential and likely to be ready to drink from 2018.

Chateau Mayne Vieil, France
Chateau Mayne Vieil Winery Image
From 1500 to 1809 Mayne-Vieil belonged to the DePaty family. The squire DePaty, Lord of Mayne-Vieil, built the winery in the 17th century. It was eventually replaced in the 18th century by the fortified house with an elegant chartreuse that currently stands on our grounds today.

Mayne-Vieil was then purchased by the Fontemoing family; a group of renowned vintners from Libourne. They created a new Fronsac vineyard which produced the so-called "new french claret"-high and aged wines similar to those being produced by the English merchants from the Chartrons in the Médoc.

In 1918, Louis SEZE acquired the property. A few years later, he abandoned his notary office to devote himself to Mayne-Vieil. His son Roger, an agronomist who succeeded him in the early 1950's, expanded the vineyards to make a contigous and beautiful plateau . He was the first proprietor of Mayne Vieil to begin bottling and selling the wine directly to private clients.

His children Bertrand and Marie-Christine Sèze succeeded Roger SEZE in the 1980's. They enlarged the domain of Mayne Vieil to more than 10 hectares.

Fronsac Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Home of the very first remarkable Right Bank wines, dating back to the 1730s, Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac actually retained more fame than Pomerol well into the 19th century. Today these wines represent some of Bordeaux’s best hidden gems.

Fronsac is a very small region at an unusually high elevation compared to other Bordeaux appellations. Its vineyards unroll along the oak-dotted hills bordering the river’s edge, making it perhaps Bordeaux’s prettiest and most majestic countryside.

Merlot covers 60% of the vineyard acreage; the rest of the vines are Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac appellations are limited to the higher land where soils are predominantly limestone and sandstone. Lower vineyards along the Dordogne River mainly qualify for Bordeaux AOC status

The best Fronsac are deeply concentrated in ripe red and black berry; they have a solid mineral backbone and are rich and plush on the finish.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
