|Chateau Meyney is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc.
In 1662, it was a Convent mentioned in records under the names Couvent des Feuillants or Prieure des Couleys. Today, the estate stretches over some of the best hilltops above the Gironde Estuary. The river lying alongside the first rows of vines makes for a majestic, serene landscape.
The estate belonged to the Luetkens family for several generations, and was then acquired by Mr Desire Cordier in 1919. In 2004, CA Grands Crus, a subsidiary of the Groupe Credit Agricole, acquired Chateau 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 Bouard.
The company CA Grands Crus, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Groupe Credit Agricole, became, in 2004, the owner of prestigious Bordeaux estates: Chateau de Rayne Vigneau, 1er Grand Cru Classe Sauternes, Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse, 5eme Grand Cru Classe Pauillac, Chateau Meyney, Saint-Estephe, Chateau Blaignan, Cru Bourgeois Medoc.
