Chateau Meyney, St. Estephe, Bordeaux, France, 2015
Overview of the Wine
Chateau Meyney is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc; in the 1660's it was a convent. Today the estate stretches over a series of hillocks overlooking the Gironde estuary. The nearness of the river, awesome in its serenity and flowing so close to the first rows of vines, gives the landscape a majestic air. The estate belonged to the same family for several generations, until the Cordiers became the owner in 1919.
65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot. 10% Petit Verdot
92 Points - James Suckling
"An outstanding red with blackberry and chocolate character. Full to medium body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very well done for the vintage considering less than perfect conditions in St. Estèphe"
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Meyney has a rounded red cherry and blackcurrant scented bouquet with a touch of spice that only develops with rigorous aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. I appreciate the fleshiness of this Saint Estèphe and it is nicely balanced. I can envisage this being an enjoyable 2015 to drink over the next decade, even if I suspect they will create better vintages in the future."
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is poised between great fruits and firm tannins. It has both in
abundance, bursting with black currant flavors and lively acidity."
