    Château Meyney is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc. It was bought by the Crédit Agricole subsidiary, CA Grands Crus in 2004. Anne Naour is the château's technical director. She is assisted by Hubert de Bouärd (who is also co-proprietor of Château Angélus). The estate has 51 hectares of vineyards planted on siliceous gravel; the vines have an average age of 35 to 40 years. Planting takes the following arrangement: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The grapes are harvested by hand and every year some 160,000 bottles of Château Meyney are produced. A second wine, Prieur de Meyney is produced in similar volumes to the first wine.

Tasting notes - Extract
Moins riche que le 1989, le Meyney 1990 est malgré tout une belle réussite de la propriété. D'un rubis-pourpre profond, il exhale un excellent nez de fruits noirs, d'herbes et de chêne, et régale le palais de ses généreux arômes mûrs, étayés par d'abondants tannins. Bien concentré, ce vin déploie une finale rugueuse modérément persistante(...). (...) Source: Robert Parker (1/93)
