Chateau Meyney 2011, St Estephe

Product Description

Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel St Estephe

Another property that has been recently purchased (by Credit Agricole in 2004) and where a great deal of effort and energy has been put in to upgrade the main wine. With the 2009, the results are certainly beginning to show through and winemaker, Anne le Naour, has managed to produce a wine which whilst retaining a strong element St. Estephe 'classicism', is much riper and intense than Meyneys of old. A profoundly deep colour and a powerful, liquorice, spice and blackberry fruit nose are the first signs of a significant change. There is plenty of fleshy fruit in the mid-palate with a classic, lifted St. Estephe earthiness. Fine-grained tannins and plenty of length finish off a very complete package. [Drink: 2015-2022]

Located in St.Estephe, Chateau Meyney is these days owned by Domaine Cordier. It lies in the east of the appellation, next door to Chateau Montrose and enjoys a maritime climate as the Gironde estuary and the Bay of Biscay act as a kind of regulator. The pine forests on the coast are a great wind break, sheltering the vines from the north-westerly winds.

With 49 hectares of clay-gravel soil, they produce about 30,000 cases per year from Cabernet Sauvignon (70%); Merlot (24%); Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (2%). Vinification includes 15 months' wood ageing, 30% of which are made of new oak.
