I clearly underrated this wine from barrel. The finest wine made at this estate since 1982, this opaque black wine is a sleeper of the vintage, with oodles of blackberry fruit interwoven with hints of charcoal, forest floor, licorice and damp earth. Deep, rich, chewy, full-bodied and opulent, this is a fabulous Meyney that, because of its low acidity and very ripe tannin, can be drunk in 3-4 years or cellared for two decades. Bravo!

Tasted at a negociant. There is just a little over-ripeness on the nose here: blackberry, a touch of prune and dried apricot/fruitcake, although the definition is fine. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip, furry tannins, black fruit laced with tar and cedar, good depth on the powerful, ripe finish. If this Meyney can lose that tincture of sur-maturite on the nose (and instinct tells me it will), then this could be the best Meyney in years. Bravo! Tasted March 2010

Green olives, spices and currants on the nose. Full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Lovely layers of ripe tannins and ripe fruit. Best after 2018. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Spicy and beautiful with blackberry and currant character. Full and silky, with beautiful fruit and a long finish

Blackish crimson. Rather savoury and cool on the nose – rather different from most St- Estèphes. Thick and sweet and then horribly dry on the end. Very drying. Austere finish. May just get there in the end. I give it the benefit of the doubt…Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
