A wine with a pretty balance of spices, blackberry, mint, and ripe fruit follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a spicy, chocolate and walnut character. Pretty balance of fruit and tannins. Better in 2016.

Solid, if a bit chunky in feel, with a slightly squared-off charcoal and ganache frame surrounding a core of dark plum, black currant and licorice root. Shows more austerity than flesh, but displays outstanding length and cut. This has added lots of grip in elevage. For fans of the taut style. Best from 2016 through 2026. 11,250 cases made.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Meyney 2010 is showing just a little over-ripeness on the nose, with fig-tinged black fruit, fruitcake and leather. Moderated definition. The palate has a succulent entry with plenty of extract: tarry black fruit and cedar all with a firm grip and leading to a dense if rather aloof finish and a leafy, mocha-tinged aftertaste. Tasted January 2014.
