2020 Château Meyney En Primeur

Château Meyney stands just half a kilometre from Château Montrose and a few hundred metres from the Gironde.  Visiting here, you feel quite far north in the Médoc (although names like Phélan-Ségur and Calon-Ségur are even higher).

Being so close to the estuary gives protection from frost and a three metre vein of blue clay (the same as is found at Petrus) runs through the subsoil, just a couple of metres below the surface.  This, and the winemaking style of Hubert de Bouard ex-Château Angélus, which favours intensity and power, contribute to the pleasurable jolt we experience each time we taste recent vintages.  At just £240 per dozen, as usual Meyney is one of the great buys of the vintage.

Producer Profile

Château Meyney, St.-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois

Château Meyney in Saint-Estèphe has been over-performing for a few years on the trot now.  It is also one of those wines which tends to attract higher scores in bottle.  An example is the 2015 vintage, scored 88-93 points from barrel by the critics, but recently re-tasted and rated 94 points by Neal Martin

Founded as a convent in 1662, Meyney is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Estèphe.  Adjacent to Montrose, Meyney was bought by Crédit Agricole in 2004.  They also own Château de Rayne Vigneau in Sauternes, Château Grand-Puy Ducasse, in Pauillac and Château Blaignan in the Médoc.

Located on a mound overlooking the Gironde estuary, the château lies at the centre of a single block vineyard of 51 hectares (126 acres).  The estuary protects the estate from frosts. The vineyard is planted on Garonne gravels, the vines averaging 35 to 40 years of age, divided between 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30%Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.

The vines climb to an altitude of 20 metres, up quite a steep slope, ensuring good natural drainage of the soil. Similar to “Pétrus”, a layer of blue clay about 3-metre thick lies at a depth of 2,6 metres below the surface.
