Full body, dense and silky with a beautiful dark currant and berry character. Long and silky. Very fine. Best Meyney in years!
A deep, powerful wine, the 2014 Meyney shows the more virile, imposing side of the vintage. Black cherries, plums, game, smoke, tobacco and menthol are all supported by a spine of firm tannin that gives the wine its imposing structure. This fruit did not come in until October 30, very late, even by the standards of the year. The style is decidedly virile, with more than enough pure depth and underlying structure to develop beautifully in bottle for many years. Consulting Winemaker Hubert de Boüard is doing terrific work at Meyney. (AG)
Made with consulting advice from Château Angelus’ Hubert de Boüard, the 2014 Meyney is a seriously rich, concentrated 2014 that packs way more character and depth than most in the vintage. And it does it at a great price as well. Blackcurrants, graphite, cedarwood, and tobacco all emerge from this deep, concentrated, burly Saint Estephe that has a great mid-palate and sweet tannin. It has enough fruit to drink nicely today but won’t hit prime time for another 4-5 years and should last for two decades. 92+
Ripe and languid in feel, with flattering plum, blackberry and black currant fruit, layered with a toasty ganache edge. Need to tighten up a bit, as the fruit is a touch gushy now despite the weight. Reveals some good acidity buried on the finish, however, so worth the gamble. (JM)
