Prieur de Meyney 2008 Saint-Estèphe


Château Meyney is the neighbour of Château Montrose, the prestigious 2nd Cru Classé. It has a wonderful vineyard and its owners manage to make the most of it to produce a typical Saint-Estèphe. Though not from one of the greatest vintages, this 2008 proves to be excellent after a few years, with superb aromas of blackberries, liquorice, toast and spices. Finish is tannic, yet finely balanced with a welcome freshness. Another very nice bottle to drink now!
