"Sister property to Commanderie of St-Estèphe (Meffre family of the Rhône) next to Pontet Canet. Very dark crimson. Extremely rich and sumptuous on the nose. But then quite luscious and with a refined top note on the palate. Some transparency. Very intense. Very Pauillac. Lots of intense ambition here. Really quite serious."

2010 VINTAGE

89 Proprietor Claude Meffre produces this wine, which is a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a fat, luscious, classic Pauillac, with oodles of creme de cassis, incense and floral notes. Richly fruity, with loads of glycerin and medium to full body, it is another sleeper of the vintage.

The vineyard of Château Plantey is located in Pauillac. It is an old property which used to be owned by the De Gerès family from Loupes, Seigneurs of Camarsac. The vineyard was purchased by Gabriel Meffre in 1958. The current owner, his son Claude Meffre, was journalist in printed media during a dozen of years. In 1996, he decided to join the familial property to manage first its other château : Château La Commanderie in Saint-Estèphe and subsequently Château Plantey from 2000 onwards.
