Chateau Meyney 1995 Cru Bourgeois Saint-Estèphe ($24.99)
Very dark garnet color. Toasty cassis and tobacco-leaf aromas, a bit closed but pleasant and complex. Black fruit flavor and lemony acidity behind a heavy curtain of tannins. Balanced, possible to glimpse its potential, especially as it opens up to toasty fruit and bitter chocolate with time in the glass, but it definitely needs cellar time. U.S. importer: Seagram Chateau & Estate Wine Co., NYC. (July 17, 1998)
FOOD MATCH: Works well with the "tannin-wiping" quality of rare grilled lamb.
E. Guigal 1995 Cotes-du-Rhône ($8.99)
FOOD MATCH: Lightly spicy turkey burgers.
