Chateau du Grand-Maine Bordeaux 1988

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this wine for £5 when I went to visit a gentleman in Sussex who buys the cellar contents at house clearances.I have not been able to find out very much about this Chateau but it is an Appellation Bordeaux Contolee and my bottle had obviously been well cellared as the cork was so sodden with wine when I opened it that it broke up.It was a pleasant wine with soft tannins and plenty of fruit. although there was a fair bit of sediment at the bottom of the last glass I thought it better than the last Appellation Bordeaux Controlee I had, the Chateau St Romain 1971.but nowhere near the standard of the Dourthe No1 Overall I would say a reasonable bottle of wine especially at the price.
