Chateau Franc-Mayne, a gem in Saint Emilion | Britt on Forbes

Share/like this post:

Saint Emilion is small-scale and very different from the Médoc on the other side of the Dordogne and Garonne rivers. Saint Emilion has an pretty, rolling and green landscape. The chateaux are smaller and not as “aristocratic”, more real homes. However, there is nothing “small” about the wines.

I have travelled in Bordeaux for many years. Inevitably I have a few favourites. One of them is Château Franc Mayne, a Saint Emilion grand cru classé, close to the town. On our Bordeaux tours, we always try and take our wine tour travellers for a visit at Franc-Mayne and it is usually one of the most exceptional and memorable visits of any wine tour. You will see why in this article.
