2021 Château Meyney En Primeur

2021 Meyney offers a very classic and typical interpretation of Saint-Estèphe terroir in this vintage, with excellent tension and saline, oyster shell character in both, pointing to the influence of the nearby Gironde estuary.  After several blockbuster vintages, we welcome the return to a more classical style.

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.

Tasting Notes"Cask sample. Excellent depth of flavour and ripeness. Sappy with no skinniness. Really no sign that this was a difficult vintage. Complete. Fresh with ripe tannins dominated by vibrant, ripe fruit. It even has some impressive persistence. It’s not super-ripe but is certainly ripe enough. Drink 2027 – 2042 17 points" (JL)------"Offering up aromas of cassis, blackberries, spices and creamy new oak, the 2021 Meyney is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with lively acids, powdery tannins and an impressively rich, textural profile for the vintage. It's a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 12% Petit Verdot. 89-91 points" William Kelley,"This has tannins, grip and plenty of character. Majors on blueberry and raspberry fruit, dips through the mid palate but enjoyable, one to look out for, with smoked caramel notes from the oak. Tasted twice. 44hl/h yield. Harvest September 24 to October 8. Anne la Naour technical director. Hubert de Bouard consultant. 91 points""A pretty wine with currant, cherry and some spices, such as nutmeg. Subtle this year. Medium body. 91-92 points""The 2021 Meyney has a lovely bouquet with floral-tinged red berry fruit, opening nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh red berry fruit laced with oyster shell and spice. Fine build towards a menthol-tinged finish, winemaker Anne La Nour has conjured a very commendable Saint-Estèphe from a tricky growing season. If release prices match your wallet, I'd stick a case (or two) in the cellar. 91-93 points" Neal Martin,
