Chateau Meney is one of the oldest estates in Medoc. The 51-hectare vineyard is located on Saint-Estephe magnificent rumps overlooking Gironde estuary. The 2006 Chateau Meyney is 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, and 12% Petit Verdot.
The wine displays a rare and intense purple red colour. The nose exudes fruity, luscious, fresh, and spicy. The palate offers a tasty attack supporting very refined tannins. The mid-palate is remarkably balanced: great wine for keep.
Tasted blind at Farr Vintners' horizontal, the 2006 Meyney has a light, orange peel and strawberry-scented bouquet with strong rose petal scents emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, firm in the mouth with a blocky, rather tough finish that I can only envisage becoming drier with time. In other words - drink this soon. Tasted April 2016.
