2020 Château Meaume 'Réserve du Château', Bordeaux Supérieur
This wine is sold en primeur - The wine will be available in spring 2023
2020 besides being a great vintage is also being heralded as a merlot year. Château Méaume’s 'Réserve du Château' is a shining example of old-vine merlot at its very best. We tasted a fresh barrel-sample sent from the Château and the wine exceeded our expectations by some way - already rich and intense with layer upon layer of flavour. The wine is currently maturing in barrel in Bordeaux and is expected here in spring 2023. At under £7 in bond a bottle, this is one of the best value 2020s on the market. It sets a very high bar indeed and one I would strongly recommend to be snapped-up en primeur, it may not be available later.
The grapes for the Réserve come from the Château’s oldest plots of merlot with an average age of over 50 years which, with their low yields, produce a wonderfully rich and concentrated wine that will be delicious drinking after 2-3 years, and will last for a good 10-15 years. For all of you who enjoy a smart buy, and a good house red for years to come, this is an exceptional vintage – fill your boots (or rather your cellar!).
A vibrant, dark ruby wine with aromas of ripe red berry fruits. It is rich and intense with layer upon layer of old-vine merlot flavours with a hint of spices and tobacco, and a lingering finish. A lovely wine that can both be drunk young and will age well.
