Ch. Meyney, St.-Estèphe - 2021

Item # 47063 750mL

Château Meyney’s vineyard is planted mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon then Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. This unusually high share of the rarer Petit Verdot explains a particular trait of the wines, which regularly show notes of leather and musk after years of age. Château Meyney's superbly located vines are planted on a contiguous, 51 hectare plot that overlooks the Gironde river. It's this very river that protects the vines during the cold season and allows for wind during the freezing months of the growing season. The soils are full of blue clay soils giving this a remarkable fruit profile on the palate.

It has one of the most impressive and distinctive textures of any wine, and has long been prized for the "softening" effect it can have on Cabernet Sauvignon - especially...

Bordeaux

Situated on the mid-Atlantic coast of France around the Gironde river, Bordeaux is home to some of the most legendary wines on earth. There are (for all intents and purposes) five grape varieties permitted under French wine law for red Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and, very infrequently, Petit Verdot and Malbec. For white Bordeaux, only three varieties are permitted: Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillion, and Muscadelle. The exact percentages of each grape variety used in any...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California, positioning it at the forefront of the New World wine scene as well. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon has a...
