Château Franc-Mayne

The estate is located northwest of Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux) in the same area. The property also includes a large quarry. In 1987 the estate became the insurance group AXA acquired in 1996 from a Belgian group and finally bought in 2005 by Griet & Hervé Laviale. It is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover seven hectares of vines, which are planted with Merlot (90%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The long-lived red wine matures in 100% new oak barrels. The second wine is called "Les Cèdres de Franc Mayne".
