Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-95 (2018 Jan.)

In my view this is perhaps the most under-rated wine in the Méo portfolio, assuming that a grand cru anywhere could be under-rated. An ultra-spicy nose flashes a fresh and ripe mélange of red currant, violet, lavender and wisps of Asian-style tea. The juicy and impressively concentrated flavors possess a gorgeous texture thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that once again does a fine job of buffering the firm tannic spine shaping the beautifully long finish. This is at once powerful yet refined and built-to-age.
