"A sleeper of the vintage, the 2011 Meyney (which escaped the hailstorm that devastated the northern Pauillac border and St.-Estephe boundary line on September 1) possesses an opaque ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of black olives, black currants, charcoal and earth. Dense and medium to full-bodied, this classic St.-Estephe offers good acidity and ripe tannin. It should drink well for 12-15 years. Old timers undoubtedly remember Meyney's brilliant track record in the decades of the 1970s and 1980s, and it appears things are back on track at this St.-Estephe estate."
"2011 is a highly technical vintage, which required precision and discipline. We think that we have overcome this difficulty. The climate during the first week of September could have tempted us to speed up harvest in order to guarantee a satisfactory crop. Instead, we intensified our efforts and acquired extremely efficient selection equipment, thus obtaining perfectly ripe grapes which reflect our ambitious quality standards. The first tastings show that our strategy paid off! Meyney 2011 shows perfect balance, quality tannins, good density and a broad aromatic spectrum." - Winery
