The Finesse and Power of a Perfectly Executed Saint-Estèphe

One of the oldest properties in the Médoc, Château Meyney is a reference that has contributed immensely to the reputation of the renowned Saint-Estèphe appellation on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

Celebrated for its robust wines, Château 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 Château Meyney 2017 already showing signs of great success.

As they say, great wines are born in great terroirs, and the vines of Château Meyney have benefitted from all the conditions necessary to produce great Saint-Estèphe wines with inimitable charm. Situated on a beautiful hill near the Gironde, Château 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 Pétrus.

Produced from a blend dominated by the emblematic red grape variety of the Médoc, le Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), complemented by Merlot (31%) and Petit Verdot (11%), the Château Meyney 2017 reflects the typical character of a great wine from Saint-Estèphe.

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 Château Meyney 2017 rewards the meticulous work of Anne Le Naour. A real success for Château Meyney that promises to be a vintage of great finesse and good ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2017 Meyney opens a little broody, giving way to red cherries, black berries and stewed tea scents with a waft of dried herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is chock-full of vibrant black fruits with ripe, grainy tannins and a refreshing kick to the finish.
