Château Meylet wines

nos vins chateau meylet

Our vineyard, located on the great wall foothills of Saint-Emilion, is near by the biggest vines of Saint-Emilion appelations "Grand Cru Classé ": Franc Mayne, Laroze, Clos des Jacobins...

Vinification of Château Meylet is perfectly natural, without sulphur or other corrosive product, for the quality of our wine. He is not classical as the appelation should be, it's our difference.

A little area for a great wine

On 1.6 hectares, with calcic sandy soils, grape varieties are 80% of "merlots" and  20% of "cabernets francs". Our production is around 25 hectos/hectares so around 5000 bottles per year.

Meticulous harvest

Château Meylet is the first to do this in Saint-Emilion, sort out directly in the vineyard, long and minutious, each grape is examinated when we cut it.  Grape pickers are initiated to put away every bad element.

After sort out the grape in the vinyard, we do a second one in the tanks, second and ultim passage for the grape before being destemmed.

Vinification is done in wood frustroconical tanks making in oak by Taransaud society, a falous cooper of Cognac city. Château Meylet is, as we know, the first to import this method of vinifcation most of the tiime  used for Bourgogne wines called "le pigeage".
