Description

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.

Following hand-picking and selection of grapes, the grapes are carefully sorted once again at the winery, passing through a brand-new optical sorting machine. Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled stainless-steel or concrete tanks. After blending, the wine is aged from 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 45% of which are new.

Tasting note – The unusually high share of Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly shows developed notes of leather with ageing.  This 2014 wine is full-bodied, well-rounded and structured.  The deep dark berry fruit characters show amazing freshness and ripeness  The Saint-Estèphe: complexity, balance and harmony is starting to shine through the youthfulness..
