Château Le Meynieu in the History of Bordeaux

Château Le Meynieu is located at the confluence of two great rivers, between land and sea. Its history has been following that of the city of Bordeaux for 2000 years, profoundly shaping the region and its traditions.

The oldest of the 18 winemaking brotherhoods of Bordeaux, Saint-Emilion, came into existence in 1199. In 1952, the brotherhoods met at the Grand Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux. Following the terrible frosts of the year, Bordeaux finally had a revival of prosperity and its leading position was recognized worldwide. In 1987, the new appellation Pessac-Léognan was created.
