2016 Chateau Meyney, St Estephe (6 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux

The 2016 Meyney has a very deep color. The bouquet is a stunner, delivering intense, mineral-rich black fruit pixelated to the nth degree. This is extremely focused and conveys the energy of a tightly coiled spring. The extremely well-balanced palate offers fine-grained tannins and superb acidity. Very pure and focused, with a harmonious, vibrant finish that lingers in the mouth. You can feel this lingering 45–60 seconds after the wine has exited. Wonderful. Tasted blind at the Southwold tasting.

The 2016 Meyney has a very deep color. The bouquet is similar to the bottle poured blind at the Southwold tasting, laden with those mineral-rich black fruits. The palate is focused and poised, framed by very fine tannins and delivering a complex and involving finish that is absolutely top-notch. This gives the big names of the appellation a run for their money. What a fantastic Meyney! A young Saint-Estèphe with a spring in its step. Tasted at a vertical at Château Meyney.

The 2016 Meyney is a bold, powerful wine. Tobacco, menthol, chocolate, spice and torrefaction notes all add shades of darkness. Meyney is potent and quite broad in feel, and yet everything is very nicely balanced. Although not especially subtle, Meyney delivers the goods, and then some.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Meyney has a nose of cassis, tar, earth and bay leaves with redcurrants. The medium-bodied palate is a little lean and herbal, with firm, grainy tannins.
