    Having matured more quickly than many northern Medoc 1986s, Meyney is a deep, dark garnet/purple-colored wine with a moderately intense fragrance of minerals, licorice, smoke, roasted herbs, and sweet black currant fruit. On the palate, the wine still has some tannin to shed, but its expansive, savory style suggests it is already accessible. With outstanding extract and layers of fruit, this wine is a candidate for another 10-15 years of cellaring - at a minimum.

    One of the best ever Bordeaux values. Over a case and several years, it always delivered great smooth fruit and silky tannins.

Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
