About this winery
Château Meyney was one of the first sites in the Médoc to Saint-Estèphe be planted with vines. In 1662, it was a convent mentioned in records under the names Couvent des Feruillants or Prieuré des Couleys. It belonged to the Feuillants monks. Today, the estate stretches over some of the best hilltops above the Gironde Estuary. The river lying alongside the first rows of vines makes for a majestic, serene landscape.
The nose has fresh notes of cassis, ivy, cedar and havana. When aerated, lots of fruits with sweet spicy notes. On the palate, the wine structure is classic; a lovely acidity supports ripe and crunchy tannins.
After a manual harvest and a meticulous sorting in the vineyard, the grapes are sorted thanks to an optical sorting device. The grapes are then put in stainless steel tanks or thermo-regulated concrete. After blending, the wines are aged 12 months in barrels.
