Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2014


SKU 113354


Château Meyney's vineyard is planted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.

Wine SpectatorRipe and languid in feel, with flattering plum, blackberry and black currant fruit, layered with a toasty ganache edge. Need to tighten up a bit, as the fruit is a touch gushy now despite the weight. Reveals some good acidity buried on the finish, however, so worth the gamble. Score range: 88-91

Wine AdvocateThe Château Meyney 2014 is a little gem. The nose is classic Saint Estèphe with blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine delineation and poise, a sense of mineralité that will hopefully be manifested in bottle. The palate is fresh on the entry with slightly chalky tannin, decent weight in the mouth with a graphite finish that is as much Pauillac as Saint Estèphe. Excellent.
