Wine Spectator 90 points - Solid, if a bit chunky in feel, with a slightly squared-off charcoal and ganache frame surrounding a core of dark plum, black currant and licorice root. Shows more austerity than flesh, but displays outstanding length and cut. This has added lots of grip in elevage. For fans of the taut style. Best from 2016 through 2026. 11,250 cases made. -JM.March/2013
Wine Advocate 90 points - Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Meyney 2010 is showing just a little over-ripeness on the nose, with fig-tinged black fruit, fruitcake and leather. Moderated definition. The palate has a succulent entry with plenty of extract: tarry black fruit and cedar all with a firm grip and leading to a dense if rather aloof finish and a leafy, mocha-tinged aftertaste. Tasted January 2014..Neal Martin, March/2014
James Suckling 92 points - A wine with a pretty balance of spices, blackberry, mint, and ripe fruit follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a spicy, chocolate and walnut character. Pretty balance of fruit and tannins. Better in 2016..February/2013
Chateau 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-Estephe: complexity, balance and harmony.
