  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 91-93+

    Opening in the glass with aromas of sweet dark berries, licorice and petals, the 2022 Meyney is medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit girdled by sweet but firm tannins. Pure and taut, it is a strong effort that will require a bit of patience.

  • Goedhuis, May 2023, Score: 91-93

    Such a fine terroir, this highly respected estate, perfectly positioned between Ch Montrose and Calon Ségur, was unfairly overlooked for a Cru Classé classification back in 1855. It consistently punches above its weight and this outstanding 2022 highlights all the vineyard’s qualities. With characters of Morello cherry, blueberry and cocoa pod, there is a juicy richness of fruit. Silky in texture, the finish of bitter dark olive gives the wine identity and personality. A very appealing St Estèphe.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    Impressive concentration here with compact tannin structure. Medium- to full-bodied. Firm and steady with a long, velvety finish. Minerally and crunchy.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2023, Score: 17+

    Deep, bright, crimson hue. Lively and lifted with a touch of well-integrated vanilla oak. Dark fruit and pencil lead as it opens. Ripe and juicy but keen and long as well. Plenty of polished tannin behind. Good acidity and refreshment. Dry but not drying finish. Poised and really rather fine. Clear potential. (James Lawther MW). Drink 2030-2047.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 95

    A vineyard that should perform strongly in this kind of vintage, because located right next to the river for air conditioning, with a mix of gravel with clear clay sections to retain freshness, and it's definitely one to look out for. Layers of redcurrant, raspberry and blackcurrant fruits, juicy mouthwatering finish, peony, pencil lead, orange peel, 3.75ph. Certainly this is a great example of Meyney. Hubert de Boüard consultant. A buy.

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.
