K&L Notes

This is the second wine of Meyney and it offers much of the flavor for half the price. This sold out quickly last time (mostly to our staff) and will likely fly out this time. Toasty aromas with sweet and delicious fruit that you can enjoy right now. 2010 was a fantastic vintage and second wine deals like this are becoming few and far between.

    Chateau Meyney is one of the top cru bourgeois properties in St-Estephe. It sits on an outcropping of gravel soil on the banks of the Gironde River immediately north of Chateau Montrose. 51 hectares of vineyards surround the chateau in a single block, planted roughly 60% to Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% to Merlot, and 10% to Petit Verdot. Average vine age is 35 to 40 years old, with the fruit from the younger vines used to make the second wine. The second label, Prieur de Meyney, owes its name to the fact that the estate was the site of a convent back in the mid-17th century. Since its inaugural vintage in 1979, Prieur de Meyney has been made in a slightly more approachable style while preserving the essential character of the estate’s wines. The 2010 Prieur de Meyney, St-Estephe, from one of the best vintages in recent memory, is a truly outstanding value. Big and rich in style, it has all of the generous black fruits and sleek, silky texture I have come to associate with this chateau. Still very youthful at a mere six years of age with firm, fine tannins you can enjoy this now with a little time in the decanter or tuck it away in the cellar for a few more years. Ample proof that the finest wines of Bordeaux don’t have to carry a huge price tag.
    Top Value!
