2012 Meyney


90Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Tasted as a barrel sample at en primeur. Picked between 2nd and 18th October and a blend of 42% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Petit Verdot, the Meyney has a “classic” nose with brambly black fruit mixed with pencil lead and cedar that open nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins, an edgy citric seam and a slightly oaky finish that will need to integrate during its maturation. There is good substance and focus here, plus there is a pleasant salty tang lingering on the aftertaste. This should be one to watch after bottling. Apr 2013, www.robertparker.com
