Meyney 1976 "Prieuré des Couleys" - Saint-Estèphe
Very good overall condition
CHATEAU MEYNEY 1976 - SAINT-ESTEPHE
Château 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 and then to CA Grand Crus, a subsidiary of Crédit Agricole 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, also owner of Angelus.
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.
"Prieuré des Couleys" is the historic name of Château Meyney ", for the sake of simplicity the château will only keep the name" Meyney "at the beginning of the 80's. This bottle is not a second wine.
Opinion of WUAT: Meyney offers, like many wines offered by Cordier (Talbot, Gruaud-Larose among others) at this time, a great aptitude for aging. 1976 was a good year in Bordeaux and, having tasted a memorable Talbot 76 (blind we gave it twenty years younger) we can assure you that this bottle will offer you a good tasting.
