Vintage Reports



1977

Not a good vintage. The growing season started cold impacted by frosts that struck most of the region. This was then followed by a wet and cold summer. While the weather improved by September it was not enough to help the vintage.

Harvest historical note: Pelé plays his final professional football game as a member of the New York Cosmos.

Reviews

Château Méaume Bordeaux Supérieur 2019

Dense garnet red with purple hues. Juvenile nose revealing itself slowly. Notes of black berries and liquorice. Delicious and fruity character on the palate. The wine has temperament, well integrated tannins and a supportive structure. It deserves a bit of care and is promising. Juicy and fruity finish.
Drinkability: 2023-2034
Score: 90-91/100

Château Méaume Bordeaux Supérieur 2019

The 2019 Méaume offers attractive red currant and blackberry fruit on the nose laced with pencil lead. The palate is fresh and nicely detailed with crunchy black fruit and nice sapid finish. What a fine Bordeaux Supérieur.
Score: 88-90

Château Méaume Bordeaux Supérieur 2018

Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Méaume gives up wild blueberries, baked cherries and garrigue scents with suggestions of pencil lead, stewed tea and wild sage. Medium-bodied, it has a taut, muscular palate with lovely vibrancy and soft, rounded tannins, finishing with an herbal lift.
Score: 89-91

Château Méaume Bordeaux Supérieur 2018

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.

Pourpre violacé. Bouquet juvénile qui se révèle lentement. Notes florales et fruitées. Je relève également des notes de fèves de cacao et d’iris. Attaque friande et juteuse. Méaume 2018 est équilibré, doté d’une bonne intensité aromatique et de tannins parfaitement intégrés. Un vin prometteur, à la structure rafraîchissante. Finale fruitée et persistante.
Score: 90-92/100

Château Méaume Bordeaux Supérieur 2018

The 2018 Méaume, 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, is a super-expressive, creamy Bordeaux Supérieur that delivers the goods. Powerful and also quite persistent, with terrific drive, the 2018 has a lot to recommend it. Iron, dried flowers, mint and sweet red cherry are nicely delineated. The 2018 is a bit firm, but that should be less of an issue once the wine is bottled.
Score: 87-89
