"The Maynard family produce outstanding, luscious, yet complex wines at almost half the price of their near neighbours. This wine comes from La Crau, a famed vineyard in Chateauneuf from which stars such as Domaine Vieux Telegraphe make ?150-plus wines. The blend is dominated by 65 per cent Grenache from 80-year-old vines. Syrah and Mourvedre make up the balance, giving wines of intense tar and spice, with touches of violets among the aniseed and crushed black fruits. It would be ideal with a robust braised oxtail and truffle mash or richer beef stews."
Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post.

"This wine represents the producer`s best efforts. Emerging from one of Chateauneuf du Pape`s most
hallowed sectors, La Crau, the hottest, most precious terroir of the appellation. This is a surprisingly fat,
opulently textured offering with abundant quantities of liquorice and smoke-infused black cherry fruit, plenty
of spice and a chewy succulent finish."
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

" A big , generously flavoured wine, full of soft, ripe strawberry fruits and warming alcohol; supple, lasting and
very classy."

Beatrice Mayard

"Vignobles Mayard is an outstanding property in the Rhône’s most renowned appellation, Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Following the phylloxera epidemic that decimated the French wine industry in the late 1800s, many vignerons emigrated to the New World. Gratien Mayard, Françoise’s great-grandfather, was set to follow them when he finally succumbed to the pull of his home and stayed to work the land. He painstakingly replanted the vineyards, vine by vine, and began making wine under the new Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. The history of Vignobles Mayard perhaps explains the decision to rid of chemicals in the vineyards and to use more environmentally friendly, labour-intensive methods. Careful attention is paid to the vines throughout the year with de-budding and green harvesting essential. "
