Situated on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Meyney enjoys an exceptional location, near the Gironde estuary. With origins dating back to 1662, this property of the subsidiary Credit Agricole Grands Crus has experienced a remarkable rise in quality in recent decades. The wines of Chateau Meyney are among the most beautiful references in the Saint-Estephe and the Medoc appellations
Chateau Meyney 2021 is a Saint-Estephe wine that stems from a vineyard of around fifty hectares, all in one piece, neighboring that of Chateau Montrose. The vineyard is planted on Garonne gravel soils with one notable feature. A vein of blue clay 3 metres thick, like the one found on the terroir of Petrus, lies buried in the subsoil.
The particularly early budding of the vines was favored by a mild, wet winter followed by a summery start to spring. The summer was cool, not very sunny and very rainy.
Vinification and aging
Once the grapes have been harvested by hand, they are sorted twice, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. Gentle, plot-based vinification. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.
Cabernet Sauvignon (54%)
Petit Verdot (12%).
This fine Saint-Estephe wine is alluring due to its harmony, its precision and its aromatic intensity.
