Château Meyney

The winery is located in the municipality Saint-Estèphe in the eponymous area in the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification according to the old system that was no longer valid, it was last classified in 2003 as "Cru Bourgeois Supérieur". The origins of the hilltop building overlooking the mouth of the Gironde go back to the 1662-built monastery "Prieuré des Couleys". This name was also included on the label until the late 1990s. During the French Revolution (1789-1799) the estate was secularized. In 1917 it was by Désiré Cordier (+1940) and remained until 2004 in the possession of the wine trading house. It was then sold to Banque Crédit-Agricole this year. The vineyards cover 51 hectares of continuous vineyards, which are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (26%), Cabernet Franc (9%) and Pinot Verdot (9%). The long-lived red wine matures in 70 to 90% new barriques for 14 months. The second wine is called "Prieur de Meyney".
