The delightful 2014 Meyney marks a year when winemaker Anne Le Naour and her team raised their game once more. A nose of lovely red berry fruit mixed with wilted rose petals and cedar gains intensity with aeration. The palate demonstrates much finer tannins than previous vintages, well-pitched acidity and superb precision on the classically styled finish. This is just entering its drinking plateau. Tasted at a vertical at Château Meyney. 93 points

My best score ever given to this wine en primeur

They`ve finally made it! For several vintages now, I have felt that quality was improving on this estate. The wine is fleshier, more melting and more fragrant with no harsh tannin. Bravo! 90 points

The Château Meyney 2014 is a little gem. The nose is classic Saint Estèphe with blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine delineation and poise, a sense of mineralité that will hopefully be manifested in bottle. The palate is fresh on the entry with slightly chalky tannin, decent weight in the mouth with a graphite finish that is as much Pauillac as Saint Estèphe. Excellent. 89-91 points

The 2014 Meyney is a real turn up for the books. It has a very intense, detailed bouquet with pure blackberry, raspberry, crushed stone and dried violet aromas, gaining vivacity with almost each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, grippy and dense and yet not overpowering. The oak is very well assimilated although it clams up towards the finish. It is a wine that will require a decade in bottle but there is huge potential here. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. 93 points
