Château Meyney had everything going for it in 2022; a great track record, a cooling, maritime location at the top of the peninsula right by the estuary, old vines with deep roots and a rich seam of blue clay, to aid with water retention during the dry summer. The result is a wine that scores 95 points from Jane Anson.
Aside from its unique advantages, we also found St-Estephes were in general some of the most enjoyable wines to taste this year, with a consistent mineral or crushed rock character on the nose and palate, very refreshing in a warm year. Among its peers (Montrose is right next door), Meyney is always great value, so do consider adding it to your cellar this year.

Tasting Notes"Opening in the glass with aromas of sweet dark berries, licorice and petals, the 2022 Meyney is medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit girdled by sweet but firm tannins. Pure and taut, it is a strong effort that will require a bit of patience. 91-93+ points" William Kelley, RobertParker.com------"Impressive concentration here with compact tannin structure. Medium- to full-bodied. Firm and steady with a long, velvety finish. Minerally and crunchy. 94-95 points" jamessuckling.com------"A vineryard that should perform strongly in this kind of vintage, because located right next to the river for air conditioning, with a mix of gravel with clear clay sections to retain freshness, and it's definitely one to look out for. Layers of redcurrant, raspberry and blackcurrant fruits, juicy mouthwatering finish, peony, pencil lead, orange peel, 3.75ph. Certainly this is a great example of Meyney. Hubert de Boüard consultant. A buy. 95 points" janeanson.com
