Amazing 2016 Chateau Meyney

Early on in my wine career I was lucky enough to sit in with an established tasting group that focused on Bordeaux. Over the course of 4 or 5 years amazing bottles were shared and debated over for a few hours every Saturday afternoon.  I learned quite a bit in that time about how a wine ages, how to assess its character and flavor profile and how to taste wine without worrying about the cost or score, just to focus on the flavor and the enjoyment. But what I learned most from that group is that Chateau Meyney always over delivers, it was a given if we were drinking Medoc wines, someone would bring a Meyney and it would always show well. Do not hesitate to grab up some of the 2016 Chateau Meyney we have left, as always it will over deliver now and in the future.
