2019 Château Meyney, St-Estèphe

2019 Château Meyney, St-Estèphe

The 2019 Meyney is another brilliant vintage for this increasingly celebrated estate. It's fine, fragrant, with light cigar box, graphite aromas above a core of dense blackcurrant, cranberry and cherry fruit. Sappy and appetising, this is very impressive indeed.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Meyney has a divine bouquet, so pure and winsome with floral red berry scents, beautifully integrated new oak and superb precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy to the point where you can almost overlook the backbone of this Saint-Estèphe. It could have been blowsy, yet it retains superb balance and feels luxuriant and long on the finish. This is a stellar showing easily eclipsing its performances either in barrel or just after bottling. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.
