The 2009 growing season met all the conditions for the production of superior vintage. The 2009 Chateau Meyney is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 15% Petit Verdot produced in the Saint-Estephe appellation.
The wine displays a purple-tinted ruby-red hue. The rich and delectable nose exudes blueberry, sweet spices, and graphite. This offering is structured and very well-balanced with a forward attack, density on the mid-palate, and silky ripe tannins: excellent vintage for keep.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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!
