Celebrated for its robust wines, Chateau Meyney has experienced new impetus under the leadership of the very talented Anne Le Naour, assistant general manager and oenologist of the property, and with the advice of renowned oenologist Hubert From Bouärd.
The 2017 vintage confirms the rank of the property’s First Wine as one of the best in the appellation, with the Chateau Meyney 2017 already showing signs of great success.
As they say, great wines are born in great terroirs, and the vines of Chateau Meyney have benefitted from all the conditions necessary to produce great Saint-Estephe wines with inimitable charm. Situated on a beautiful hill near the Gironde, Chateau Meyney watches over a rare vineyard of about fifty hectares in one piece. The exceptional terroir of the property combines soils of Garonne gravel on the same blue clay subsoil found at Petrus.
Produced from a blend dominated by the emblematic red grape variety of the Medoc, le Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), complemented by Merlot (31%) and Petit Verdot (11%), the Chateau Meyney 2017 reflects the typical character of a great wine from Saint-Estephe.
A superb expression of fruit, elegant woodiness, a juicy texture on the palate, a perfectly defined tannic structure - the 2017 vintage is the result of hard work from the team. Accurate, harmonious, structured and balanced with great elegance, the Chateau Meyney 2017 rewards the meticulous work of Anne Le Naour. A real success for Chateau Meyney that promises to be a vintage of great finesse and good aging potential.
