Chateau Meyney 2008

A well-balanced and rich red wine from Saint-Estephe

The estate

Situated on the left bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Meyney is in an exceptional location, close to the Gironde estuary. With a history dating back to 1662, this estate, owned by the Credit Agricole Grands Crus subsidiary, has experienced a remarkable increase in quality over recent decades. The wines of Chateau Meyney are among the finest references in the Saint-Estephe and Medoc appellations.

The vineyard

Next to Chateau Montrose, Chateau Meyney watches over a 51-hectare single plot vineyard. The vines are 36 years old on average and are planted on Garonne gravel soils with a notable feature. A 3-metre thick layer of blue clay, that can also be found in the Chateau Petrus terroir, is buried in the subsoil.

The vinification and aging

The hand-picked grapes are rigorously sorted before destemming, followed by a plot-by-plot vinification in temperature controlled stainless steel or concrete tanks. After blending, the wine is aged for 16 to 18 months in barrels (30 to 40% of which are new oak).

The blend

Chateau Meyney 2008 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (29%) and Petit Verdot (18%).

The tasting

Color

This wine is an intense purple-red color.

Nose

Expressive, the nose blends fruity (blueberry, blackcurrant), floral (violet) and toasted bread fragrances with delicious mineral notes.

Palate

Full and well-balanced, this wine seduces the palate with its silky tannins and its exceptional length.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Meyney was very impressive from cask, but the bottled wine is hard, tannic, angular and less well-endowed than it appeared from barrel. What happened?
