CHATEAU MEYNEY 1988 - SAINT-ESTEPHEChâteau Meyney is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc. With its current 51 ha, the estate has changed hands several times, going from Luetkens to Cordier in 1919 then to CA Grand Crus, a Crédit Agricole subsidiary in 2004, which intends to exploit the full potential of this excellent Saint-Estèphe. They are assisted by the advice of the oenologist Hubert de Boüard.
On siliceous gravel soils, the vines are between 35 and 40 years old on average and consist of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
Dominating the Gironde, the vineyard is protected from frost by the river.
This Vintage 1988 is particularly successful. Parker gives it 88 points by comparing it to the excellent 1975 vintage. It has immense aging potential and should begin to open today.
Meyney is a symbol of consistency and quality, just like Talbot or Domaine de Chevalier. If you are looking for an excellent price / pleasure ratio, this bottle will appeal to you. And if you don't drink it.. we'll be happy to.
