2016 Meyney, St-Estèphe

SKU #1427429 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wild nose. Impressive, deep hue and a wealth of fresh, violet-like aromas, as well as cassis, graphite and dark cherries. The palate has a very sleek, fine, powerful core of tannins that bring a lot of depth and deliver rich dark-fruit flavor. A classic Meyney. Best since 1961! Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Rich and full, this is very St-Estèphe: round through the mid-palate, with an amazingly tasty balance of richness and freshness leading to salinity and minerality on the finish. It will need another five to eight years before being ready to drink, but it has to be one of the value picks of the vintage. (JA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Meyney is a bold, powerful wine. Tobacco, menthol, chocolate, spice and torrefaction notes all add shades of darkness. Meyney is potent and quite broad in feel, and yet everything is very nicely balanced. Although not especially subtle, Meyney delivers the goods, and then some. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Very dark crimson. Intense Indian ink on the nose. Give me my calligraphy pen! Rich and round. Very glamorous. So much effort has gone into every drop of this. *Very Good Value* 18.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

This is very dark with ripe tannins poking through the leather and tobacco laced boysenberry and blackberry fruit. The wine is substantial and firm and has a very polished finish of dark fruit, clay and mineral.
