Meyney 2022

Meyney

Case Format: 12x37.5cl

Max score: 95.0

Occupying a single 51-hectare plot overlooking the Gironde estuary, Château Meyney benefits from one of the most enviable spots in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Steeped in history, Meyney dates itself back to the seventeenth century, at a period where the estate was owned by a group of Bordeaux monks. Today it is a subsidiary of Crédit Agricole Group, and was purchased alongside Grand-Puy Ducasse, as well as many other acclaimed estates. Using their superb terroir to their advantage, Meyney’s vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.60%), Merlot (c.30%) and Petit Verdot (c.10%), and benefit from some of the oldest vines in the appellation – with several reaching nearly 100 years of age. The terroir comprises gravel and sand, with a large strip of blue clay that helps both the Merlot and Petit Verdot to thrive. In turn, their alchemic blend of grapes and respect for the terroir has contributed to a spicy and complex wine that has excellent ageing potential.

William Kelley

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.

Intensely fragrant and perfumed. Fresh and full on the palate, really quite ripe and concentrated fruit with tannins that are super ripe too - fleshy, almost like eating grape skins, so its a touch dry but theres a really pleasing coolness too which stops it from being too much. On the whole quite tannic but a good punch of fruit too. Massy and a little unfussy unrefined. Tannins are doing the talking. Harvest 14 September-5 October. Yield of 37hl/ha. pH 3.75.
