Winemaker Notes

Chateau Mayne-Vieil Cuvee Alienor is a selection of old Merlot vines planted on clay and gravel. The vineyard is grassed - without leaves on one side - and green-harvested. While decreasing yields, this method provides better ventilation for the grapes.

Wine Enthusiast
This pure Merlot wine from Mayne-Vieil is ripe and rich. Full of jammy blackberry and black plum, it is a generous wine, enveloping the tannins in a cushioned embrace. It is going to develop into a delicious wine. Drink from 2018.

Showing excellent density and drive, the 2014 Château Mayne-Vieil Merlot sit head and shoulders above many wines from the Fronsac AOC. This wine's firmness makes an excellent match with grilled meats, especially beef. (Tasted: October 11, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

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.
