This 22-hectare estate is situated just 2km north-east of the town of Blaye and has been in the same family since 1850. Pierre and Béatrice Ardoin are the current generation looking after the Château since 1990.
Château Le Meynieu is located in the heart of the Médoc, close to the village of St-Estèphe.
The Donissan de Citran family ruled this estate in the 13th century until 1832, when the last heir had to sell the estate to Mr. Clauzel. This rich, ambitious businessman defined the property’s boundaries and gave Château Citran prominence among the Médoc estates.
"This remains a wine that has virtually a grand cru Burgundian complexity and savoury character, and it is often a great value among the famous names of Bordeaux."
