Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2015

SKU 07792


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 Enthusiast92-94. Barrel Sample. This wine is poised between great fruits and firm tannins. It has both in abundance, bursting with black currant flavors and lively acidity.

Wine SpectatorThe core of dark plum and cherry fruit has good flesh for the vintage, though this is decidedly austere, with iron, singed alder and bay leaf notes holding sway through the finish, ending on the taut and woodsy side. A bit of cellaring will help, but this is unlikely to harmonize fully. Best from 2020 through 2027. 17,000 cases made.
