Prieur de Meyney is the second wine from Château Meyney,
which was known in the 18th century as Prieuré des Couleys.
Made with the same care as their first wine, and using a
similar blend, it comes from the younger vines on the
estate. These have an average age of 15/20 years.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot & 15% Petit Verdot
grapes are used in this blend. Nice Oak brings out the
best of the Cab in this blend. Since its creation with
the 1979 vintage, the team has had time to refine this
wine that owes a lot to its senior partner: intense aromas
on the nose, with deep fruit flavors that show the ripeness
of the grapes. It is an elegant and supple Saint Estephe,
more forward than its big brother, yet built to pass the
test of time. 2007 Turned out to be a great year for well
made Bordeaux (Called a "Sleeper Year"). This wine will keep for 25 or more years if
