Superbly located on a mound overlooking the Gironde estuary, the Château Meyney lies at the centre of a single block vineyard of 51 hectares in the appellation of Saint Estephe. The Château is owned, today, by CA Grands Crus, part of the Crédit Agricole group, who also have several other prestiguous Bordeaux châteaux to their name.
Its situation looking down onto the Gironde and the presence of the estuary helps protects the estate from frosts. The vineyard is planted on Garonne gravels and the vines have an average age of 35 to 40 years, divided between around 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
The vines climb to an altitude of 20 metres up, quite a steep slope, ensuring good natural drainage of the soil. Similar to 'Pétrus', a layer of blue clay about 3-metre thick lies at a depth of 2.6 metres below the surface.
