2012 Meyney, St-Estèphe

SKU #1425283 91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A chewy and fresh wine with spice, nut and currant character. Full-bodied and muscular. Needs time to soften. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Meyney is a deep, structured wine with a lot going on in the glass. The expressive bouquet alone is enticing, but all the elements simply come together effortlessly. The pliant fruit suggests the 2012 can be enjoyed young - and it can - but there is also more than enough depth to allow the wine to age gracefully for years. This is an impressive Saint-Estephe, especially for the year. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

89-91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is marked by new-wood spice and strong structure that showcases a sense of weight and spicy ripeness. The palate is powerful, while also maintaining a bold, juicy character. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This estate is quickly returning from a long period of mediocrity. This sleeper of the vintage exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to copious notes of black raspberries, blueberries, loamy soil and roasted Provencal herbs. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

Decanter

Outer quote mark Dense colour, concentrated cassis nose, all the meaty richness from these well-placed vineyards and a good future. (SS) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2012 Meyney has an attractive blackberry, wild hedgerow and sous-bois bouquet that demands a bit of coaxing from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins supporting black fruit laced with orange peel and white pepper. There is decent weight and density on the finish, completing a very capable and enjoyable Meyney. Drink over the next decade. Tasted at a vertical at Château Meyney." (07/2020)
