The history of Château Barrail Meyney begins with Patric Esben in 1995. Initially consisting of 9 hectares in the town of Génissac, the property now covers 30 hectares, spread over several appellations. Château Barrail Meyney is located in two villages: Génissac and Nérigean, between the Garonne and the Dordogne, ten minutes away from Libourne and Saint-Emilion. Today, the property is managed by Patrick Esben who will soon be joined by his son to continue the family tradition.
The vineyards of Château Barrail Meyney are composed of clay, sandy and limestone soils. The soils are planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The careful vinification work and the efforts made over the years by the Esben family are the reasons why Château Barrail Meyney is one of the oldest exclusivivity of BT. The wine is vinified in concrete vats in order to maintain a traceability of the parcels. The vatting is 3 weeks at controlled temperature. The breeding is mainly done in vats. Patrick Esben produces wines that are always consistent and of a regular quality, whatever the vintage.
At the tasting, Château Barrail Meyney offers a supple wine rich in fruit. The tannins are relatively fat and rich. The finish is toasty and long.
