The Saint-Estèphe property, Château Meyney produced a cracking wine in 2016 and comes Highly Recommended @ £245.00 IB per case...
The 2016 Meyney is powerful and absolutely delicious. Black fruit, torrefaction, smoke, licorice and bittersweet chocolate flavors are dark and boldly sketched. Beams of firm tannin add to the wine's imposing, brooding personality. All the elements fall into place effortlessly in this ample, broad Saint-Estèphe.
Solid and incredible depth reminds me of the Meyney of the 1960s that were so structured and incredible. Full body yet polished and refined. Super structure.
The 2016 Meyney has quite an opulent and flamboyant bouquet, which is something I do not expect from this Saint Estèphe. It seems to calm down in the glass and attains more delineation and poise. The palate is sweet on the entry with impressive precision, quite linear in style with blackberry, graphite and smoky notes, leading to a finish that offers satisfying persistence. Excellent.
