Chateau Meyney is located on rumps nearing Gironde estuary, at the heart of a vineyard of approximately 50 hectares. Despite contrasted weather conditions in 2013, Chateau Meyney released an interesting blend with 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and 11% Petit Verdot.
The vintage presents a plum-ruby hue. The nose exudes red fruits, graphite, and spices. This offering from Saint-Estephe appellation is dense and reveals tannins in harmony with luscious red fruit flavours.

With Hubert de Bouard as their consultant, this once popular estate seems to be positioned to shake things up in terms of the overall quality hierarchy in St. Estephe. The 2013 is a major sleeper of the vintage. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a deep ruby/plum/purple hue along with notes of creosote, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, graphite and spice. This lovely, charming, fruit-filled 2013 should drink well during its first 6-8 years of life.
