Many believe Château Meyney should have gained Grand Cru Classé status in 1855. Its wines certainly show their class. Wine Advocate described the 2014 as “a little gem”, “delightful and well defined”. Already delicious, it’ll continue to improve.
"Delightful, well-defined bouquet of blackberry, cedar and pencil box that is your typical St Estèphe"
Neal Martin Wine Advocate
Critic Hugh Johnson says of Meyney “the vineyard is comparable with its second-growth neighbour Château Montrose and first-growth Latour in its perfect site on the slopes leading straight down to the river.” But when Bordeaux wine estates were classified in 1855, to win Grand Cru Classé status required contacts as well as great vineyards. This fine property, dating back to the 1660s, has 50 hectares of Cabernet dominated vineyards, with 25% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot. For years it was co-owned by Châteaux Gruaud Larose and Talbot and now it’s the property of the Crédit Agricole bank, who certainly have money to splash, as recent vintages have demonstrated. This claret has fruit, velvety tannins and poise for long ageing. Decant early.
