Chateau Meyney 2003

89+ points

Saint Estephe, Bordeaux. 13%

Some dry, ripe 2003 aromas but this turned out to be quite fresh.  Rich, young but not a study tannic St.Estephe, (quite approachable with food) now.  If it were sweeter I might have mistaken it for a top Western Australian cabernet.

Judging purely from what’s in the glass now I don’t have any reason to doubt that this wine might live for a long while, but I also don’t see much need for aging it a long time.  The benefit of 2003 claret is that it drinks early.
