  • Robert Parker, February 2013, Score: 90

    It is good to see this well-situated estate in St.-Estephe get back on track. The 2010 has loads of beef blood, charcuterie and smoked game along with black currant fruit. Some underlying graphite notes are also present in this full-bodied, meaty, fleshy wine, which has outstanding concentration and the potential to last for 15 or more years. It is a major sleeper of the vintage.

  • James Suckling, April 2011, Score: 93-94

    This is the best Meyney in years with blackberry, mint and minerals on the nose and palate. Full and super silky, with a long, long finish. Wonderful wine.

  • Wine Spectator, April 2011, Score: 91-94

    Dark, pure and driven, with seriously focused black currant, anise and plum notes and a long, graphite-filled finish. A strong showing. -J.M.

Producer

Château Meyney

Château Meyney enjoys one of the prime positions in St Estèphe, just next to Montrose, with their vineyards planted on gravel running down to the Gironde. Their vines comprise of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
