2005 Cru Bourgeois Supérieur Saint Estèphe
|Classification||Cru Bourgeois Supérieur|
Very dark fruit expression, sloes, damsons, blueberry. A slightly blunt attack, the palate very round and sweet-tasting. Full and very attractive, with sophisticated tannins on the finish. Rating: 90 L&S (Apr 2006)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Big colour, big gutsy full-bodied, spicy Saint-Estephe, rich and earthy with robust fruit. Drink 2009-18. Rating: ***/16 www.decanter.com (May 2006)
Aromas of tar, ripe fruit and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with a good core of round-textured tannins and a long finish. Friendly wine. Nicely done. Rating: 89-91 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator (May 2006)
Very ripe and focused and intense on the nose. Surprisingly gentle for a St-Estèphe. The polar opposite of the Phélan Ségur - almost disconcertingly smooth. Competent but ultimately a bit workmanlike. Full, round, easy - just slightly too flattering on the palate perhaps but awfully easy and full of charm. Another airline (ie early maturing, please-all) wine? Certainly no shortage of fine 2005 tannins. Very dry finish. Well done. 2009-18 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (May 2006)
Chateau Meyney in St. Estephe has a long history starting in the 17th century. At that time, the Bordeaux wine estate belonged to the monks who planted the first vines at Meyney. The 123 acre Bordeaux wine vineyard with vines averaging between 35 and 40 years old is planted to 61% cabernet sauvignon, 26% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 10% Petit verdot. The gravel based terroir has a large streak of blue clay close to three metres thick.
