Château Meyney Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Château Meyney can be dated back to the 17th century but its origins are much older as it is founded on an ancient ecclesiastical site. Meyney is one of the most ancient of the Northern Médoc vineyards, its recorded history goes back as far as 1662, when a large part of the actual buildings were constructed on and with the foundation of the Priory of Couleys (Prieuré des Couleys) , or the Convent of the Feuillants (Couvent des Feuilles) as it was also known. The Château is still sometimes referred to as Prieuré de Meyney. The wines of Château Meyney are deep, dark and concentrated with plenty of ripe blackcurrant fruit and a distinctive aroma of smoke, prunes, truffles, coffee and cherries. The wines are well structured, velvety smooth and weighty. They age well and should be cellared as they continue to develop well in the bottle. “Gorgeous aromas of blackberry, currant and spices. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and layers of fruit. Goes on and on. Best after 2007. 10,830 cases made. ” 91 points - James Suckling, Wine Spectator

Beautiful nose, with blackcurrant, spice, leather, and cigar box. Blackcurrant on the palate too, as well as red cherries, earthy notes, spice, medium+ acidity, and fairly grippy tannins still, so will keep the other bottle in the cellar for a few years still. Nice complexity and excellent length.
