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"Aromas of dark berries, cassis, vanilla pod and spicy new oak introduce the 2023 Meyney, a medium-bodied, lean and compact wine with a somewhat drying finish. 87-88 points" William Kelley,"The 2023 Meyney is surprisingly backward on the nose with blackberry, kirsch, touches of black pepper and loamy aromas. It remains understated in the glass yet gains purity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Maybe a little conservative in style, it stays within the confines of the vintage, but it feels harmonious. What is missing is just a bit of grip and density on the finish. Let's see if this will "kick on" during its barrel-maturation. Maybe this Meyney has something up its sleeve? 89-91 points" Neal Martin,"The 2023 Meyney is terrific. Silky and polished, the 2023 shows a side of Meyney I have not seen before. There's also terrific freshness and overall brightness. Dark red plum, blood orange, chalk, mint and dried herbs are all beautifully delineated. More than anything else, I admire the wine's poise. 91-93 points" Antonio Galloni,"A very solid Meyney with a firm tannin frame that holds the wine together. Medium body. Juicy finish. 93-94 points""Often a benchmark wine for me in a vintage, and it is a good sign for the Left Bank in 2023 that Meyney is tasting great. A punch of inky plum and blackberry fruit, good lift and freshness, plenty of tannic grip, an excellent wine. A buy. CA Grands Crus owners. 94 points" 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,
