Chateau Meyney

Chateau Meyney is located in the St. Estephe appellation of Bordeaux. On the 50 hectare estate, the vines have an average age of between 35 and 40 years. The grape varieties grown are 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. The soil structure of the vineyard is made up of the gravel from the Garonne with a subsoil of clay. The grapes are hand picked following the Medoc tradition which are then sorted, fermented and left in stainless steel and concrete vats for 30 days, before maturation in 40% new barrels.

Bordeaux

Undoubtedly the most well-known fine wine region on the planet, the French wine region of Bordeaux spans 120,000 hectares of vineyard and is demarcated by the Gironde Estuary and its two main tributaries, the Garonne and the Dordogne. The region is divided into the Left Bank, for vineyards located on the left bank of the Garonne River, and the Right Bank, for vineyards on the right bank of the Dordogne. Famous Left Bank appellations such as Pauillac, Saint-Julien, Saint-Estephe and Margaux are well-known for their quality, but value is also found in Haut-Medoc and Moulis. The Right Bank is well known for Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, while the upcoming regions of Lalande-de-Pomerol and Cotes de Bordeaux Castillon should not be overlooked. Close to the city Sauternes and Barsac make some of the world's best sweet wines, while the appellations of Pessac-Leognan and Graves do a fine line in rich reds and full-bodied whites. Red Bordeaux wines are made from a blend of grapes, and the permitted varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and, less commonly, Malbec and Carmenere. Very broadly speaking, Right Bank wines will have a predominance of Merlot, while Left Bank wines will rely on Cabernet Sauvignon as the primary variety in a blend. White wines, both dry and sweet, are made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle.

Saint-Estephe

One of the more famous Bordeaux wine appellations, Saint-Estephe is part of the broader Medoc appellation on the Left Bank of the Gironde estuary. Separated from Pauillac to the south by a small stream, Saint-Estephe is known for its high-quality AOC wines, and also contains some classified growths, including Montrose, Cos d'Estournel and Calon-Segur. The most northerly of the major Medoc appellations, Saint-Estephe has less river based gravel in its soils and relies on heavier, clay-based soil for its grape production. As a result the appellation's grapes perform better in warmer, drier years as the clay's moisture-retaining properties help to sustain the vines. Typically the best wines of Saint-Estephe are deeply coloured, with rich, complex flavours and are very long-lived. At their best they can rival any wine from Bordeaux.

Bordeaux Red Blend

Red Bordeaux wines are most often made from a blend of grapes, officially Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmenere. The term is now used across the world to emulate the style of the famous blended wines of Bordeaux, and will be made in the same style in the majority of examples. When very broadly referring to Bordeaux wines, Left Bank wines will have a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon, while Right Bank wines use Merlot as the dominant partner in the blend.
