The savory 1988 Chateau Meyney


In the recent past the 1988 Chateau Meyney, Saint-Estephe would have been one of the oldest wines in my basement.  As such, I carefully saved this final bottle.  Last tasted seven years ago I found it oscillated between shut-down and open states. Today it is a fully open wine which is comforting on the nose and rather savory in the mouth.  I suspect you can drink this with full enjoyment over the next five years or so.  This wine was purchased many years ago at MacArthur Beverages.

1988 Chateau Meyney, Saint-Estephe
Imported by Chateau & Estate Wines.  This wine is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc.  Alcohol 12.5%.  There are comforting, scented aromas of leather and roast earth.  This savory wine has mature, dark fruit and polished wood that matches the juicy acidity.  There is still freshness as well ripe, dry texture but the wine remains at its peak with a touch of earth and vintage perfume.  *** Now – 2021.
