Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet sauvignon finds ideal maturing conditions in these well-drained gravel soils. Blended with merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot, it produces a wine that is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured. Its making and maturing is painstaking. When fully ready it shows the unique charm of the best Saint Estephe wines: complex, well-balanced and harmonious.

About Chateau Meyney:

Château Meyney is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc; in the 1660's it was a convent. Today the estate stretches over a series of hillocks overlooking the Gironde estuary. The nearness of the river, awesome in its serenity and flowing so close to the first rows of vines, gives the landscape a majestic air. The estate belonged to the same family for several generations, until the Cordiers became the owner in 1919.
