2003 Meyney, St-Estèphe

SKU #1024320 93 points James Suckling

 This is pure and focused with blackberries, plums, and currants on the nose, with hints of dried spices on the nose. Full and very precise, with chewy tannins and a powerful finish, Tight and rich, with lots of fruit. Give this a rest until 2013, then pull the cork.  (3/2011)

 *Smart Buys* Gorgeous aromas of blackberry, currant and spices. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and layers of fruit. Goes on and on. Best after 2007. (JS)  (3/2006)

 Dark crimson. Translucent and appetising and so delicate and ethereal! Quite exceptional. So lifted. Very well done, lots of fruit there. Even if not that much density. 17/20 points. Drink to 2020.  (10/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted blind at Farr Vintner’s Left Bank tasting. Wow. Where did this come from? The Meyney ’03 was not one of the better Saint Estephes in its youth, but it is certainly blossoming with age. It has a very bold, lifted bouquet with damson, plum, cedar and pinecone aromas. Moderate definition, perhaps showing a little over-ripeness. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins, the tannins a little aggressive but there is more than enough fruit concentration to back it up. Rigid backbone on the finish with an agreeable degree of freshness. Tasted October 2010. (NM, Wine Journal)  (9/2010)

Wine Enthusiast

 Meyney is often the most gentle of the great estates of Saint-Estèphe, and in 2003 this character is most obvious. The wine is full of vitality and ripeness, soft tannins showing the property more than the hot year. The fruit dominates right through the wine, with dryness only appearing in the aftertaste. (RV)  (5/2006)
