Tasting Note:

This has been one of the stand-out values from Bordeaux in recent vintages. On current form this would certainly be worthy of an 1855 classification. The 2020 is very impressive indeed. The nose screams of classy Cabernet fruit: pure cassis, lots of graphite and minerals infused with meadow flowers, brooding and intriguing. The core is packed with pure small berry fruit – it’s seriously intense, focused, bright, vivid, this is a wonderfully refined Meyney with real length and gravitas. It is sure to be one of the best value wines of the vintage! Fresh, detailed, serious – a profound Meyney.

"A punch of bright plummy fruits, a little austere on the finish but one that you feel will age well. Mocha and coffee bean through the mid palate, keeping things moving right along at a fair pace, with a generous handful of rosemary and sage spice on the finish. Harvest 16 September to October 1. Always one of the real value picks in St-Estèphe. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038". 93/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com

"A firm, intense red Bordeaux with blackcurrants and purple fruit, as well as hints of walnuts and some sweet tobacco. It’s full-bodied and dense with layers of fruit and tannins." 93-94/100 James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

"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. Drink from 2025 to 2045". 91-93/100 - Neal Martin, Vinous

"The 2020 Meyney is a very pretty if somewhat understated wine. In 2020 it has a bit less opulence than in the recent past, but that's not a bad thing at all. Silky, elegant and refined, featuring aromatic red fruit character, gravel, cured meat, scorched earth, spice, crushed rocks and rose petals. Drink from 2026 to 2028". 90-92/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
