The 2009 Meyney is a step up from Haut-Marbuzet and Lafon-Rochet on the nose: blackberry, raspberry, crushed stone, forest floor and a hint of pain d’épices - wonderful definition and intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, very well judged acidity. Good grip and quite stocky/broad-shouldered in style with a persistent but at the moment, still a tightly wound finish. This is impressive and when its identity is revealed - cue gasps from the audience. Go buy. (NM)
Green olives, spices and currants on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely layers of ripe tannins and ripe fruit. Best after 2018.
I clearly underrated this wine from barrel. The finest wine made at this estate since 1982, this opaque black wine is a sleeper of the vintage, with oodles of blackberry fruit interwoven with hints of charcoal, forest floor, licorice and damp earth. Deep, rich, chewy, full-bodied and opulent, this is a fabulous Meyney that, because of its low acidity and very ripe tannin, can be drunk in 3-4 years or cellared for two decades. Bravo! (RP)
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot. Final year of the three-year programme of vineyard restructuring and equipment renewal. Elevated tying up of one-third of the vines. Cellar master Denis Rataud celebrated his 20th vintage. Dark lustrous crimson. Fresh mature Cabernet on the nose. Very direct and correct. A good glass of rewarding wine already. Long. 17/20 points (JR)
