Chateau Meyney 2016 is a vintage that every wine-maker will remember, thanks to the Indian summer and the weather conditions during the harvest.
Chateau Meyney 2016 is a blend of 49% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Petit Verdot. This Saint-Estephe has a pronounced and complex nose with notes of juicy black fruit. The aromas are very concentrated. The mouth has a powerful attack, with a beautiful acidity and freshness. In the middle of the palate, the tannins are well-structured and creamy. The finish has smoky and mineral (graphite) characteristics. A Saint-Estephe full of class and character.
Château Meyney’s vineyard is planted on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.
