Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2009

SKU 5208


Good intensity with deep red colour and purple tinges. Enticing nose full of cassis, mild spices and graphite. The whole bouquet is very expressive. The palate reveals a well structured and balanced wine with clear-cut flavours, dense middle palate and ripe, silky tannins. Here is a truly great vintage for cellaring from Meyney. Can be enjoyed as from 2015. At its best between 2025 and 2030.

Wine AdvocateI 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!

Wine SpectatorOn the taut side, with mulled fig and black currant fruit framed with a thick layer of roasted tobacco and allied to an austere, chalky finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 13,330 cases made.
