Tasting notes: 2015 Meyney is a Saint-Estephe having a deep and dark red exhale in the first nose an intense, fruity, floral and spicy bouquet. The notes of blackcurrant, black cherry, violet, tobacco, black pepper and graphite amass during the aeration. The attack is both powerful and rich. The creamy mid-mouthful echoes the intense bouquet of wine and confirms a big aromatic complexity. At that mid-mouthful, the touch on the tannins surprises by its softness. The final feel is distinguished and juicy, assuring on this Grand Saint-Estèphe a rare sensual delight.

Barrel Sample. This wine is poised between great fruits and firm tannins. It has both in abundance, bursting with black currant flavors and lively acidity. (RV)

Impressive dark-cherry and dark-plum aromas with nicely delivered spices and chocolate to boot. The palate has a very vibrant, very juicy and fresh pure palate with dark cherry flavors that hold bright. Very approachable St.-Estephe. Try from 2020. (2/2018)

The 2015 Meyney is terrific. There is lovely depth to the black cherry, graphite, smoke and earthy flavors. This is an especially supple, fruity style for Saint Estèphe, and yet there is more than enough underlying structure to give the wine backbone, persistence and a good deal of explosive energy as well.

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Meyney has a rounded red cherry and blackcurrant scented bouquet with a touch of spice that only develops with rigorous aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. I appreciate the fleshiness of this Saint Estèphe and it is nicely balanced. I can envisage this being an enjoyable 2015 to drink over the next decade... (NM)
About the winery
In 1662, Château Meyney was a convent. The archives designate it under the name of Couvent des Feuillants or Prieuré des Couleys. Meyney is one of the oldest properties of Médoc. The domain remained for several generations in the same family before being acquired, in 1919, by D. CORDIER then now by the company CA Grands Crus.
Built on a hilly terroir near the Gironde, the property is located in the center of a vineyard of fifty hectares, in one piece, consisting of beautiful gravel-clay croups. The vines, average 35 to 40 years old, are divided between 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot. The grapes are extracted from a perfectly drained soil, ideal conditions to reach maturity.
Since 2005, the company CA GRANDS CRUS has chosen to adopt sustainable agriculture and thus enhances the positive impact of agricultural practices on the environment while limiting the negative effects, without risking danger in the economic profitability of their properties. The harvest is manual according to the Medocan tradition. After a double sorting of the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery, the winemaking continues in mixed stainless steel and concrete vats. The wines then join the cellar for a breeding of 16 to 18 months in oak barrels of which 40% are new each year.
