Châteaux Meyney in Saint-Estèphe has been over-performing for a few years on the trot now. It is also one of those wines which tends to attract higher scores in bottle. An example is the 2015 vintage, scored 88-93 points from barrel by the critics, but recently re-tasted and rated 94 points by Neal Martin. On those terms, the 2019 vintage surpasses the '15 out of the gate. We tasted it yesterday sandwiched in between Phélan-Ségur and both Pichons and it held its own, with plenty of power and dark, coffee and tobacco aromas noted by some of the critics.
Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.
