Chateau Meyney St. Estephe 2016
Chateau Meyney dates to the 17th century when the estate belonged to the monks who planted its first vines. Prior to the planting of vines, the property was a convent. Meyney’s modern age starts in 1917 when it was purchased by the well-established Cordier family. The vineyard is planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, with some of the oldest vines in the appellation.
JS95-96: "Solid and incredible depth reminds me of the Meyneys of the 1960s that were so structured and incredible. Full-bodied yet polished and refined. Super structure."
