(From 2011 Vintage) 2011 is a highly technical vintage, which required precision and discipline. We think that we have overcome this difficulty. The climate during the first week of September could have tempted us to speed up harvest in order to guarantee a satisfactory crop. Instead, we intensified our efforts and acquired extremely efficient selection equipment, thus obtaining perfectly ripe grapes which reflect our ambitious quality standards. The first tastings show that our strategy paid off! Meyney 2011 shows perfect balance, quality tannins, good density and a broad aromatic spectrum.
(From 2010 Vintage) Château Meyney’s vineyard is planted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, on a perfectly-drained gravel soil that provides ideal conditions for grapes ripening. This unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after a period of time. The wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. After ageing, the wine displays the remarkable charm of the best Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony.
