Château Meyney, Saint Estèphe 2020
Available En Primeur
2020 Château Meyney, a wine we tasted twice in the office ahead of the campaign and all absolutely loved on both occasions. What gratification! A perfumed, silky and sumptuous St. Estèphe that lit up our tasting room; we immediately recognised here is an irresistible 2020 beautifully poised to deliver superb drinking pleasure whether you decide to pull the cork in 4 to 5 years’ time, or indeed in 10.
"Dark, lustrous crimson. Really very glamorous indeed. Ripe but fresh nose with an interesting balsam note. Smooth as satin initially on the palate with the savoury tannins (actually there in abundance) just nudging onto the palate at the end, which is dry but not drying. Very long and rather splendid on the finish with St-Estèphe’s stoniness evident. Very smart indeed with no concessions to simple sweetness"

"The 2020 Meyney has a lively, quite powerful nose delivering plenty of blackberry, boysenberry and briar scents, plus touches of freshly tilled loam and wilted iris flower; I appreciate how forthright this is. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins and graphite-laced blackberry. Quite citric toward the finish, showing Pauillac-like pretentions. This is a classy Saint-Estèphe from Meyney that will age with style."
