Château Haut Mayne
Château Haut-Mayne, owned by the Moumazeilles family, is located on a plateau in Preignac in the northern part of the Sauternes appellation. The Haut-Mayne vineyard comprises 10 hectares planted on clay and limestone.
A rich and full wine with aromas of dried fruits. Silky and elegant with good length.
Wonderful as an aperitif, or an ideal accompaniment to Roquefort cheese.
Made using 96% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon grapes. The grapes are picked manually by passing through the vineyard 3 or 4 times, with a further sorting just before pressing. After being completely destemmed, the grapes are placed in a hand operated basket press, where the juice then runs into cement tanks or barrels. The maceration process is relatively lengthy and all the wine is aged in barrel, of which 25% is new each year. Bottling takes place after approximately 18 months in wood.
