A broad and ample Saint-Estèphe from the super 2016 vintage. Black fruits, cigar box, liquorice and dark chocolate boldly wrapped up in chunky ripe tannins. Very well balanced despite the power, and utterly delicious.

51% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot

The 2016 Meyney has a very deep color. The bouquet is a stunner, delivering intense, mineral-rich black fruit pixelated to the nth degree. This is extremely focused and conveys the energy of a tightly coiled spring. The extremely well-balanced palate offers fine-grained tannins and superb acidity. Very pure and focused, with a harmonious, vibrant finish that lingers in the mouth. You can feel this lingering 45–60 seconds after the wine has exited. Wonderful. 95pts.
