The estate belonged to the Luetkens family for several generations, and was then acquired by Mr D?sir? Cordier in 1919. In 2004, CA Grands Crus, a subsidiary of the Groupe Cr?dit Agricole, acquired Ch?teau Meyney, with a determination to strengthen the potential of this outstanding cru. An improvement plan was put together for the entire estate. It is supervised today by Anne Le Naour, the Technical Director, and the consultant oenologist, Hubert de Bou?rd.
The second wine of Ch?teau Meyney comes from one of the top estates of the appellation. From selected parcels and barrels of wine, this shows the same sense of structure as the top wine, while the fruitiness is developing more quickly. The black currant and plum-juice flavors are already bursting from the tannins.
