Media Reviews

Jane Anson

It`s clear that this is hugely concentrated, as is the Montrose right next door, but there`s also beautiful juice and freshness underneath the black fruits and the powerful grip. Tannins, acidity and fruit: it`s all there. This is great quality and should be long-lived, with a rich palate, evenly balanced and austere in all the right places. Another good vintage at this increasingly impressive property. 94 points

Julia Harding

Black core with deep purple rim. Very oaky on the nose, sweetly toasty as a counterpoint to stony, dark fruit. The oak really dominates the palate, the tannins thereby thickened, like thick chocolate. Chewy finish but it does have enough freshness. 16 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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. 89-91+ points

Antonio Galloni

The 2018 Meyney is powerful, dense and super-expressive. Gravel, game, scorched earth, smoke, licorice, incense and spice infuse this potent, virile Saint-Estèphe. The fruit profile and oak integration point to a transition towards a less extracted style. Even so, there is plenty of the richness readers have come to expect from Meyney. 91-94 points

Chris Kissack

The assemblage in this vintage is 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 18% Petit Verdot. The nose is dark, fresh, ripe and poised, showing aromas of perfumed hedgerow fruits, fresh and bright, with very pure black plum and black cherry veins behind. The palate is cool, fresh, beautifully textured and balanced, with a reserve and poise that matches very nicely the deeply buried tannic backbone and fresh acid profile. There is plenty of firm grip in the finish, although the overall effect is cool, refined, yet brimming with sinewy texture and fruit, and a deliciously fresh acid-driven vigour. Very well done. 93-95 points
