Château Meyney Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 1983

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the Medoc’s oldest estates is Château Meyney in Saint-Estèphe. These are the wines that many of us sunk our first teeth into Bordeaux with and were a staple at many of New York’s top restaurants and Bistros. It is one of the overachieving Cru Bourgeois that Americans have come to love because they are capable of producing classified-growth quality without the price. Meyney has a history dating back to the 17th century when the Château belonged to monks who planted the first vines not too far from where Château Montrose resides today. However, it was not until Bordeaux’s well-respected Cordier family took over the Château in 1917 that the modern, and more serious, era of Meyney began. If you are looking for classic claret with approachable pricing, look no further than the fabled Chateau Meyney." Zachys Buying Team

spicy, huge tobacco nose, sweet pipe tobacco, little beefy, coal, little matchstick, intense, leather bomb in a good way – rich, a little creamy, wild cherry fruit, mineral a bit simple but large scaled, coarse tannins on the finish, black fruit, nice sweetness lingering here, bit of chalkiness 86pts
