Description
Wine Style:  Full Bodied Red

Chateau Meyney is a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur from Saint Estephe
and
lies in the east of the appellation, next door to the Second Growth Château Montrose.  Meyney has very much been an insider's choice as the wines have a been of persistently high quality throughout the 20th century. 

This is an old estate
which can be dated back to the 1600s - however its origins are much older. It is founded on an ancient ecclesiastical site – the Prieuré des Couleys or sometimes as the Convent des Feuilles . . . the Château is still sometimes referred to as Prieuré de Meyney. The monks were the first to plant vines there. Today Meyney is under the ownership of Crédit Agricole Grands Crus, alongside 5th Growth Château Grand Puy Ducasse and Sauternes First Growth Rayne Vigneau.

The vineyards of Château Meyney are a single plot of 126 acres stretching out over a series of gravel ridges overlooking the River Gironde. The soil is a mix of iron rich blue clay and sand about 3 metres deep over a limestone bedrock from a depth of about two metres – which is similar to the famous Château Petrus in Pomerol.

Being a full bodied wine Meyney accompanies rich casseroles, venison, pigeon, wild boar, beef, lamb and duck very well indeed. 

Recommended Food and Wine Pairing:
Good with French Comte cheese -
Comte is a mountain cheese from the Jura matured for 10 months to give depth of flavour. It has a sweet yet nutty flavour, with a firm, smooth and creamy texture and a fruity finish.
