Château Meyney has for decades represented one of the best values in the world. It still does and it’s a wonder it’s still as lowly priced as it is. Next door to Montrose and it has a nose reminiscent of its illustrious neighbour.
Dark and generous with complex aromas of dried cherry, mint, licorice, cedar and tobacco alongside hints of white and black pepper. Medium-bodied on the palate with fine grain tannins and a long finish.
This is more proof of the consistency of Meyney. It has clear oak finessing, well held together with a cinnamon dusting and white pepper spicing, giving a gourmet edge with its own character. This feels finessed, contemporary and accomplished; a pretty complete package. This perhaps doesn't quite have the generosity of 2016, as the tannins are a little more tightly-drawn, but this is still good. Retasted several times and it stands out for its quality.- 92 pts Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine
