"Superb as the 2020 was, the 2022 Franc-Mayne appears to represent still another step up in quality for this seven-hectare clay-limestone terroir. Offering up aromas of dark berries, plums, raw cocoa, violets and bay leaf, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy, with a pure and vibrant core of fruit, supple tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. The label marks this estate's first year of organic certification."

"The 2022 Franc Mayne (100% Merlot) is superb. Dense and ripe, the 2022 impresses with its energy and overall tension. I especially admire the energy here. Dark fruit gravel cedar and tobacco, with blood orange and rose petal accents. This could turn out to be special. Drinking window : 2028-2042"
- Antonio Galloni
"Beautiful aromatics of red, blue, and black fruits, as well as tobacco and leafy herbs, emerge from the 2022 Château Franc Mayne, a youthful, unevolved, yet pure, concentrated 100% Merlot barrel sample. The tannins here are ripe and nicely integrated, and it has plenty of mid-palate depth as well as outstanding length, all pointing to this being a brilliant wine in the vintage. Tasted twice."

Franc Mayne 2022 is the earliest vintage in Franc Mayne’s history. A new heroic vintage punctuated by now traditionals spring frost, tricky month of June followed by a heat wave plus drought during summer. This is an opulent wine with a delicate balance between the powerful caused by this arid context and the energy which makes Franc Mayne identity. Château Franc Mayne 2022 will be execptional and, for the first time, organic!
