About the Wine
Superbly located on a knoll overlooking the Gironde estuary, the château lies at the center of a single block vineyard of 126 acres. The estate was founded in the 17th century, the first vines were planted by the monks that owned the property at the time. Large improvements have been made to the estate since its purchase in 2004 by the CA Grand Crus. The ownership brought on Hubert de Bouard, the winemaker of Chateau Angelus, to consult. With new leadership, Chateau Meyney is now producing the best wine it ever has.
Château Meyney looks down onto the Gironde and the presence of the estuary protects the estate from frosts. The vineyard is planted on Garonne gravels. The vines are an average age of 35 to 40 years, divided between typical Bordeaux varieties. The vines climb to an altitude of 20 meters up, quite a steep slope, ensuring good natural drainage of the soil. Similar to “Pétrus”, a layer of blue clay about 10 feet thick lies at a depth of 8 feet below the surface. These remarkable natural factors give the wine an exceptional richness.
