2015 Meyney, St-Estèphe

SKU #1358342 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Meyney was the shock of this blind tasting - in a positive sense. It blew everyone's expectations including mine. It has very impressive intensity on the nose, more than its peers, with blackberry, raspberry, sage and just a touch of dried blood. This is quite complex and very engaging. The palate is very well defined with fine acidity, razor-sharp tannin and plenty of mineralité toward the persistent finish. I thought it might be Montrose but it turned out to be Meyney. Chapeau! Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Very dark crimson. Rich array of aromas on the nose. Ambitious with lots of stuff covering a pretty massive charge of tannins. Just slightly inky. Exciting finish. Very persistent. Classic build with lots of ambition. Everyone thought this was Montrose! *Very Good Value* 18.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

This Cru Bourgeois is consistently one of the best left-bank values in Bordeaux. Hailing from superb terroir in the northern commune of St. Estephe, its owners at the time were allowed to submit only one property for the Grand Cru classification of 1855 and chose La Tour Carnet (4th Growth) because it had the superior chateau. What this means for you is a great wine for a great price. The 2015 is displaying beautifully with rich cherry/red currant fruit, toasted cedar, wild game and subtle earth. It shows lovely freshness on the palate and is drinking well beyond its price point.

Honestly, I'm an irregular Bordeaux drinker, as I don't drink it very often. But when I do, I usually want it with an epic meal and I look for Bordeaux from appellations I enjoy from the region (Saint Julien, Pomeroy, Margaux). I do appreciate a good Bordeaux, especially during the holidays so it was only natural to have this for christmas dinner this year. The 2015 vintage of Meyney was truly a delight. With 6 years of age, the tannins were supple, making the bottle easy drinking. I was drinking this bottle with my uncle and my best friend over ox tail, and before we knew it, the bottle was gone and I had wish I brought more wine over. Next year, I'll have to bring two bottles of Bordeaux.
