Chateau Meyney Saint-Estephe Bordeaux 2016

Chateau Meyney Cru Bourgeois Supérieur is a classic Saint Estephe with a deep ruby red hue and a delicious nose of red and blackberry fruit, together with attractive whiffs of spice. The combination of freshness and dense tannins on the palate give one an idea of its potential over the coming years. Especially in outstanding 2016 vintage, excellent value Bordeaux.

Best from 2022 - 2032

"The 2016 Meyney is powerful and absolutely delicious. Black fruit, torrefaction, smoke, licorice and bittersweet chocolate flavors are dark and boldly sketched. Beams of firm tannin add to the wine's imposing, brooding personality. All the elements fall into place effortlessly in this ample, broad Saint-Estèphe."

Solidly built, with a dark and juicy core of currant, plum and blackberry reduction flavors, inlaid with charcoal and smoldering tobacco notes. Offers a pleasant loamy tug through the finish. Gutsy wine. The better of two bottles tasted. Best from 2022 through 2032.
