2014 Saint-Estephe from Bordeaux

The good weather during both months of September and October led to the interruption of the sanitarian deterioration of the earliest varietal- Merlot - but also to the gain in concentration of the late ripening varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The 2014 Chateau Meyney offers a wine of character. The aromatic expression is dense and frank; scrumptious black fruit aromas prevail (black currant and black berry) enhanced by a spicy hint. The palate is fruity and the wine is dense with a sap that is specific to Saint-Estèphe. Yet, the tannins are surprisingly smooth. The good ripeness of the Cabernets gives solidity and freshness to the wine. This Saint-Estèphe is a serious wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
When I tasted the 2014 Meyney from barrel, I described it as a little gem. Now in bottle, is it still glistening as brightly? Well, it has a delightful, well-defined bouquet of blackberry, cedar and pencil box that is your typical Saint Estèphe. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin on the entry, good weight in the mouth and that Pauillac-like graphite tincture on the finish extant. There is a touch of chewiness here, some rough edges that will need to be abraded by bottle age, but there remains good potential.
