Hello again David,Can you please tell me something about this two wines,i can not find similar on the internet,Thank you very much.

Answer
Hi Serafin,

Ch Meynieu is a Medoc Cru Bourgeois made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with some Cabernet Franc. It's a robust wine that tends to be rather tannic and thus benefits from some age in the bottle - especially in relatively light vintages such as 1976. However it is now well into decline and is too old for me to have any confidence that it would still be enjoyable.

Ch Cheval Noir is a reputable St Emilion that is relatively light and elegant in better vintages than the very hard and tannic !975. It's made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

This wine has no connection with the great Ch Cheval Blanc and is also some way past it's best.

Neither wine would be easy to sell I'm afraid, if that was in your mind.

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
