  • The 2019 and several other back vintages look good value relative to today’s release.

Grand Mayne 2020 has been released at €27.60 per bottle ex-négociant, up 9.5% on the 2019’s opening price.

It is being offered by the international trade for £334 per 12×75, up 5% on the current price of the 2019.

The 2019 looks good value in relation to today’s release with a stronger score from Neal Martin and with its discount. See more Fair Value analysis below.

Critical opinion

Benchmark critic Neal Martin scored the wine 93-95, saying it, “offers plenty of finely chiseled scents” and had a “sense of refinement on the finish”.

Jane Anson at Decanter scored it 93 and James Lawther MW for JancisRobinson.com marked it 16.

Fair value

The Liv-ex Fair Value methodology suggests that the 2020 release is within what would be considered ‘fair value’.

Nonetheless, those looking for opportunities among the estate’s back vintages have many options. Remaining stocks of the 2019 at a 5% discount to the 2020 and with a slightly stronger score from Neal Martin is a clear option.

There is also value to be had from the 2014 to 2018 vintages which all carry scores between 92 and 94 and at varying discounts to the 2020.
