Château-Meyney St. Estephe 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
Solidly built, with a dark and juicy core of currant, plum and blackberry reduction flavors, inlaid with charcoal and smoldering tobacco notes. Offers a pleasant loamy tug through the finish. Gutsy wine. The better of two bottles tasted. Best from 2022 through 2032. 15,000 cases made.
The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Meyney has a nose of cassis, tar, earth and bay leaves with redcurrants. The medium-bodied palate is a little lean and herbal, with firm, grainy tannins.
