Château Le Meynieu is located in the heart of the Médoc, close to the village of St-Estèphe.
"Cantemerle remains one of the top values among the Classified Growths. It’s an estate you can count on to produce elegant, character driven wines at a fair price."
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 is the superstar of the appellation. Chasse Spleen was one of six properties decreed a ‘Cru Bourgeois Exceptionel’ in 1932. The wine is full-bodied, firm and long-lasting, but with a richness and quality of tannins. There have been few, if any, disappointments in the last 25 years."
"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."
