Description

Château Veyry 2016 comes from a great Bordeaux vintage on the Right Bank, producing full-bodied, concentrated rich, complex, fruit-laden wines with crisp acidity and freshness.

Veyry is a garage wine – a term used to describe production that could fit into a garage. It is also literally a garage wine, comprising a battered old garage housing two battered old Citroens and disguising a small high-tech winery!

The estate’s secret is a combination of the genius that is Christian Veyry with 4 hectares of south-facing vines that are a direct continuation of the limestone ridge upon which the great Saint-Émilions are based. Château Veyry is certainly in the same rich vein as this classic Bordeaux style, without the price premium of its more famous neighbours. Remarkable fine red wines from an unremarkable shed.

The 2016 Veyry is definitely the finest that I have tasted from this estate. It has a very well defined and focused bouquet with crisp delineation and fine minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well judged acidity, very refined in style without compensating on intensity or persistence. After a slightly perplexing showing of the 2015 Veyry last year, this 2016 shows an estate back on form and it comes highly recommended.
