This Saint Estèphe château makes wines that are true to the appellation with impressive depth and concentration.

The 2021 Meyney has a lovely bouquet with floral-tinged red berry fruit, opening nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh red berry fruit laced with oyster shell and spice. Fine build towards a menthol-tinged finish, winemaker Anne La Nour has conjured a very commendable Saint-Estèphe from a tricky growing season. If release prices match your wallet, I'd stick a case (or two) in the cellar. 91-93 Neal Martin.

Gorgeous floral aromatics, this is crisp with the most delicious blackcurrant and black cherry and strawberry fruit flavour - really so well executed. Lively and bright, clean and clear. Succulent and juicy, lovely frame and texture overall. A wonderful easy to drink wine, with elegance refinement but still that concentration that drives the flavours from start to finish. A top buy for classic claret, refreshing, minty, deep, layered and so charming. 92 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.

This has tannins, grip and plenty of character. Majors on blueberry and raspberry fruit, dips through the mid palate but enjoyable, one to look out for, with smoked caramel notes from the oak. Tasted twice. 44hl/h yield. Anne La Nour technical director. Hubert de Bouard consultant. 91 Jane Anson.
