Château Meyney - Saint-Estèphe

Château Meyney is a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur of Saint-Estèphe. It overlooks the Gironde, this proximity to the river protects it from frost. A fairly steep slope gradually brings the 51-hectare vineyard up to an altitude of 20m, facilitating the natural drainage of the land.

What are the specificities of Château Meyney?

The Château Meyney in Saint Estèphe has a long history that begins in the 17th century. At that time, the Bordeaux wine estate belonged to the monks who planted the first vines in Meyney. Before the vines were planted, the property was used as a convent.

However, the modern age of Château Meyney began in 1917, when it was bought by the Cordier family. The wines were produced at that time by the same team that looked after all the many Cordier estates.

In 2004, Château Meyney was bought by CA Grands Crus which owns several other Bordeaux properties, including Château Grand Puy Ducasse in Pauillac, Château Rayne Vigneau in Sauternes and other crus bourgeois. Thierry Budin is in charge of the different Bordeaux wine estates.

The 2014 vintage is exceptional! Château Meyney has produced what could be the best wine in the history of the estate. But that is until the discovery of the 2016 vintage which surpasses it.

The vineyard of Château Meyney of 51 hectares is composed of:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 60%
  • Merlot 30%
  • Petit Verdot 10%

The vineyard is in one large plot, which is unusual for a vineyard of this size. Located near the Château Montrose and not far from the Château Phelan Ségur. The Château Meyney possesses a terroir of gravel and sand with a wide strip of blue clay almost three metres thick, which lies beneath the gravel and sand, surface soil.

To produce the wine of Château Meyney, the vinification is carried out in traditional, temperature-controlled cement vats of variable size. The wine is aged in 60% new French oak barrels for 18 to 24 months.

There is a second wine, "le Prieur de Meyney" produced by the estate.
