Château Meyney's vineyard is planted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.

Wine Enthusiast92-94. Barrel Sample. This wine is poised between great fruits and firm tannins. It has both in abundance, bursting with black currant flavors and lively acidity.

Vinous"The 2015 Meyney is terrific. There is lovely depth to the black cherry, graphite, smoke and earthy flavors. This is an especially supple, fruity style for Saint Estèphe, and yet there is more than enough underlying structure to give the wine backbone, persistence and a good deal of explosive energy as well.

Wine SpectatorThe core of dark plum and cherry fruit has good flesh for the vintage, though this is decidedly austere, with iron, singed alder and bay leaf notes holding sway through the finish, ending on the taut and woodsy side. A bit of cellaring will help, but this is unlikely to harmonize fully. Best from 2020 through 2027. 17,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Meyney is scented of cassis, red currants and black berries with wafts of earth and herbs. The palate is medium-bodied and firm with nice fruit expression and vibrancy.
