Chateau Meyney

Grand Cru Classe

Perhaps this vineyard should have been granted Grand Cru Classe back in 1855 but then it lacked the much-needed contacts within the hierarchy of Bordeaux. Today, as one of the oldest Chateau in Medoc and as a Cru Bourgeois estate, it offers excellent value.

Château Meyney was one of the first sites in the Médoc to be planted with vines. In 1662, it was a convent mentioned in records under the names Couvent des Feuillants or Prieuré des Couleys. It belonged to the Feuillants monks. Today, the estate stretches over some of the best hilltops above the Gironde Estuary. The river lying alongside the first rows of vines makes for a majestic, serene landscape. The estate belonged to the Luetkens family for several generations and was then acquired by Mr Désiré Cordier in 1919.

In 2004, CA Grands Crus, a subsidiary of the Groupe Crédit Agricole, acquired Château Meyney, with a determination to strengthen the potential of this outstanding cru.

Meyney benefits from an exceptional site, a unique terroir, a rich and long history dating back to the 16th century, making it an outstanding Medoc estate.
