Impressive, deep hue and a wealth of fresh, violet-like aromas, as well as cassis, graphite and dark cherries. The palate has a very sleek, fine, powerful core of tannins that bring a lot of depth and deliver rich dark-fruit flavor. A classic Meyney. Best since 1961! Try from 2023.

The 2016 Meyney is a bold, powerful wine. Tobacco, menthol, chocolate, spice and torrefaction notes all add shades of darkness.

Tobacco, menthol, chocolate, spice and torrefaction notes all add shades of darkness. Meyney is potent and quite broad in feel, and yet everything is very nicely balanced. Although not especially subtle, Meyney delivers the goods, and then some. -- Antonio Galloni

The palate is smooth and pleasurable. ‘A more modern style,’ said wine buyer Jean Haudy, ‘but very agreeable’. Indeed, somewhat similar in style to Beau-Site, and also an improvement over the 2010, which is not quite as focused or as fresh.
