2022 Château Meyney En Primeur

Château Meyney had everything going for it in 2022; a great track record, a cooling, maritime location at the top of the peninsula right by the estuary, old vines with deep roots and a rich seam of blue clay, to aid with water retention during the dry summer.  The result is a wine that scores 95 points from Jane Anson.  

Aside from its unique advantages, we also found St-Estephes were in general some of the most enjoyable wines to taste this year, with a consistent mineral or crushed rock character on the nose and palate, very refreshing in a warm year.  Among its peers (Montrose is right next door), Meyney is always great value, so do consider adding it to your cellar this year.

Offered en primeur, landing spring 2025.

Château Meyney, St.-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois

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.
