Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

Blueberry, blackcurrant, clove, dark chocolate, praline and gravel on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Focused, chewy and layered. Fantastic effort here. Try from 2025.

D 94
Decanter

It's clear that this is hugely concentrated, as is the Montrose right next door, but there's also beautiful juice and freshness underneath the black fruits and the powerful grip. Tannins, acidity and fruit: it's all there. This is great quality and should be long-lived, with a rich palate, evenly balanced and austere in all the right places. Another good vintage at this increasingly impressive property. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040. Barrel Sample: 94

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Pure and direct, featuring damson plum and cherry fruit flavors streaming through, laced with tobacco and chalk notes. Good streamlined finish.
Barrel Sample:90-93
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Meyney gives up blackcurrants, black berries and plums on the nose with earth and spices plus fried herbs and lots of oak. The big, full-bodied palate has some promising fruit but is a bit hard and oaky.
Barrel Sample: 89-91+
V 91
Vinous

The 2018 Meyney has opened up slightly on the nose since I tasted it from barrel, gradually revealing attractive scents of brambly black fruit, raspberry, Indian ink and hints of sage and clove. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin's, well-judged acidity and plenty of graphite toward the finish, which just needs to develop more precision. This feels a bit blocky at the moment, but I am sure it will eventually come round. Drinking window: 2023 - 2040

Chateau Meyney, France
Chateau Meyney Anne Le Naour – Managing Director  Winery Image

Château Meyney is located in the famous Saint-Estèphe appellation in the northern part of Bordeaux. Ideally flanked by Château Montrose (2ème Grand Cru Classé) and Calon-Ségur (3ème Grand Cru Classé), it lies at the center of a single block of vineyards of 60 hectares (126 acres) overviewing the Gironde estuary.

Meyney was founded by Cistercian monks in 1662. The property was confiscated during the French Revolution, and subsequently resold into private hands. It was owned for several generations by the Luetkins family, royalists, who also owned Château La Tour Carnet (4th growth). During the 1855 classification, the Luetkins family had the right to present one estate for classification. Torn between Meyney (which had a superior terroir) and La Tour Carnet (which had a more majestic chateau), The Leutkins submitted La Tour Carnet...which was classified as a 4th growth. As a result, Meyney was not classified. However, given its prime location and extraordinary terroir, it is considered as many as a 2ème or 3ème Grand Cru Classé, but at a much more affordable price.

The property is owned by the CA Grands Crus since 2004 and is led by Anne Le Naour’s team. With major investments done in the vineyard and the cellar, Meyney is now producing world class wines today. Today, half of the vineyard goes through organic practices.

La Chapelle de Meyney is the second wine of Meyney. These are younger vines of 15-20 years that will one day make it into the Grand Vin. The wine is aged for 12 months in 35% new French oak.

Estate grown and bottled. Sustainable and organic practices. 4,000 cases produced annually.
