Tasting Notes

The 2009 Chateau Meyney is composed of 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot; Deep, rich and powerful fruit flavours with quite a strong, tight palate that’s going to take a few years to soften, but once is has this should be hugely enjoyable Saint Estephe - One to tuck away in the corner of the cellar to mature till the end of the decade, after which this should be an enchanting wine.

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

16/20 Jancis Robinson

In the press...

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!

Regional info

Saint-Estephe is situated at the northern end of the Haut-Medoc region of Bordeaux on the left bank of the Gironde estuary. Unlike the other key Medoc areas, the soil here has less gravel and a higher proportion of clay which helps to give the wines of St. Estephe their own distinctive character: They are often richer in colour and flavour and are known for their longevity. Although there are some outstanding classified Saint Estephe chateaux (of which Cos d'Estournel is arguably the most famous), most of the wine here is produced as Cru Bourgeois and so it's often a source of excellent wine, often at very good prices
