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.

The Meyney 2011 has a pleasant bouquet with ripe blackberry and wild hedgerow aromas. It has very fine delineation. The palate is well balanced with a slight hardness on the entry. It is a little tough at the moment and I hope it softens by the time of bottling as I like the nose so much. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This has concentration and depth, with a very gravelly undertow to the dark plum and cassis fruit, all framed by a mouthwatering tobacco edge. Shows depth and drive on the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

From a blend of 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot. The wine reached 13.7% alcohol. The wine will be aged in 35% new oak. Damage to various degrees took place to almost 80% of the vineyards due to the September hail storm. Coffee, blackberry and earthy aromatics, medium bodied with ripe tannins, cassis and spicy black cherry in the finish. Jeff Leve, theWineCellarInsider.com
