A red Grand Vin from Saint-Estèphe in a remarkable vintage

A challenging vintage indeed, 2018 nevertheless turned out to be a great year for Château Meyney, located in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux.

After a beginning of the season marked by strong surplus precipitation, a beautiful summer brought plenty of sunshine and lasted until the date of the harvest, allowing the fruit to ripen fully. At Château Meyney, the grape harvest began with the Merlot on September 24, and ended with the Cabernet on October 12, 2018. Each variety presented a dazzling quality.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (42%), Merlot (40%) and Petit Verdot (18%), the Château Meyney 2018 reveals the signature style of a red Grand Vin of Saint-Estèphe, with very nice potential for age.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Meyney gives up blackcurrants, black berries and plums on the nose with earth and spices plus fried herbs and lots of oak. The big, full-bodied palate has some promising fruit but is a bit hard and oaky.
