Machtig terroir, grote wijn, kleine prijs. Het kan niet, tenzij we het over Meyney hebben. Florale rijkelijkheid, tonaliteiten van rijpe kersjes en zwarte bessen en bosvruchten, stralend fruit, precieze tannine, volmondige milieu de bouche en een heerlijke crescendo opbouw van “everything-ness”. De opbouw is zo mooi dat we deze Saint Estèphe volmaakt kunnen beschouwen, van begin tot einde. Ronduit verrassende prestatie, al zien we dit dikwijls in grote wijnjaren op Meyney. Ik vond het verbluffend en ben niet alleen: Jancis Robinson zag het ook! “The best kept secret” van 2020?
 
IN DE PERS
 
91-93 Neal Martin – vinous.com (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Meyney has a lively, quite powerful nose delivering plenty of blackberry, boysenberry and briar scents, plus touches of freshly tilled loam and wilted iris flower; I appreciate how forthright this is. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins and graphite-laced blackberry. Quite citric toward the finish, showing Pauillac-like pretentions. This is a classy Saint-Estèphe from Meyney that will age with style. Drink: 2025 – 2045.
 
90-92 Antonio Galloni – vinous.com (Mei 2021)
The 2020 Meyney is a very pretty if somewhat understated wine. In 2020 it has a bit less opulence than in the recent past, but that's not a bad thing at all. Silky, elegant and refined, featuring aromatic red fruit character, gravel, cured meat, scorched earth, spice, crushed rocks and rose petals. Drink from 2026.
 
90-92+ Lisa Perrotti Brown - robertparker.com (Juni 2021)
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Meyney springs from the glass with lively notes of red and black cherries, cassis and pencil shavings, plus touches of clove oil and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, the elegantly fruited palate delivers impressively pure black and red fruit layers with ripe, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing savory. A very impressive showing for what remains a relative bargain! Drink 2023-2035.

93 Jane Anson – decanter.com (Mei 2021)
A punch of bright plummy fruits, a little austere on the finish but one that you feel will age well. Mocha and coffee bean through the mid palate, keeping things moving right along at a fair pace, with a generous handful of rosemary and sage spice on the finish. Harvest 16 September to October 1. Always one of the real value picks in St-Estèphe. Drinking Window 2025 – 2038.
 
93-94 James Suckling – jamessuckling (April 2021)
A firm, intense red Bordeaux with blackcurrants and purple fruit, as well as hints of walnuts and some sweet tobacco. It’s full-bodied and dense with layers of fruit and tannins.
 
91-93 Jeb Dunnuck – jebdunnuck.com (Mei 2021)
Another wine worth seeking out, the 2020 Château Meyney shows the fresh, focused, yet also ripe style of the vintage nicely. Offering lots of pure cassis and black cherry fruits as well as tobacco and classy oak, it’s medium to full-bodied and has a pretty, elegant texture, plenty of mid-palate depth, and ripe yet certainly present and firmer tannins. I love the overall classic vibe as well as its purity and freshness.
 
17,5/20 Jancis Robinson – jancisrobinson.com (Mei 2021)
Full bottle 1,350 g. Cask sample taken 26 April. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot. Merlot was picked 16 to 24 September, Petit Verdot was picked 23 September, Cabernet Sauvignon was picked 24 September to 1 October. Cold soak and some malo took place in new barrels. Matured in barriques (35% new). Dark, lustrous crimson. Really very glamorous indeed. Ripe but fresh nose with an interesting balsam note. Smooth as satin initially on the palate with the savoury tannins (actually there in abundance) just nudging onto the palate at the end, which is dry but not drying. Very long and rather splendid on the finish with St-Estèphe’s stoniness evident. Very smart indeed with no concessions to simple sweetness. Drink 2028 – 2046.
 
92-94 Jeff Leve – winecellarinsider.com (Mei 2021)
Black and blue fruits with a wealth of Asian spices and espresso is found right off the bat on the nose. On the palate, the wine is rich, supple, lush and polished with a core of ripe, dark, sweet fruits, silky tannins and a finish packed with peppery fruits, chocolate and espresso beans. Give this at least 5-6 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 20-25 years.

Meyney

Château Meyney is één van de oudste wijndomeinen van de Médoc en bestaat uit één blok van 51 hectare op de oevers van de Gironde nabij Montrose. De wijngaard is aangeplant met 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot en 10% Petit Verdot. Deze laatste cépage is een zeldzaamheid in Saint Estèphe. Even zeldzaam is de bodemsamenstelling die dimensie geeft aan deze bewaarwijnen: in de bodem van graves silicieuses loopt een ader van blauwe klei op 2,6 meter diepte en 3m breed. Het is hiermee eigenlijk een eersterangsterroir. Het zijn onderschatte, maar prachtige, stevige en kordate Saint Estèphes. De eerste wijnstokken werden aangeplant in 1662 door les Pères Feuillants. Sinds 2004 is Crédit Agricole eigenaar. Onder toezicht van de directrice Anne Le Naour en consulent Hubert de Boüard de Laforest van Angélus kent Château Meyney een ware heropstanding.
