Overview

St-Estephe A.C.

Château Meyney’s vineyard is planted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.

Winery Profile

Château Meyney is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc.

In 1662, it was a Convent mentioned in records under the names Couvent des Feuillants or Prieuré des Couleys. Today, the estate stretches over some of the best hilltops above the Gironde Estuary. The river lying alongside the first rows of vines makes for a majestic, serene landscape.

The estate belonged to the Luetkens family for several generations, and was then acquired by Mr Désiré Cordier in 1919. In 2004, CA Grands Crus, a subsidiary of the Groupe Crédit Agricole, acquired Château Meyney, with a determination to strengthen the potential of this outstanding cru. An improvement plan was put together for the entire estate. It is supervised today by Anne Le Naour, the Technical Director, and the consultant oenologist, Denis Dubourdieu.

The company CA Grands Crus, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Groupe Crédit Agricole, became, in 2004, the owner of prestigious Bordeaux estates: Château de Rayne Vigneau, 1er Grand Cru Classé Sauternes, Château Grand-Puy Ducasse, 5ème Grand Cru Classé Pauillac, Château Meyney, Saint-Estèphe, Château Blaignan, Cru Bourgeois Médoc.
