Château Méric is located in the head of the Medoc vineyard, approximately 6 km far from the Estuary of the river Gironde and 12 km far from the ocean. The vineyard is planted on a Medoc brow 14 meters over the sea level. This privileged situation, between the estuary and the ocean, profits by a microclimate enhancing the bouquet of the noble vine-plants and allowing the maturity of the grapes. The soil, composed of sandy gravels on the surface and river Garonne gravels in depth, brings delicacy, smoothness and tastefulness to the CM wines; The Château Méric are distinguishable by their fine aroma of ripe fruits, marked with cherry and dried plum flavours, by a slightly amber-coloured ruby red tint, by tannins flavoured with vanilla and by a long lasting taste in the mouth. Oxygenating the wine by opening the bottle one or two hours before drinking will create the best conditions to appreciate the CM with pleasure and restraint. The various vine-plants involved are shared in strict compliance with the proportion of the Medoc tradition, i.e. 55 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 % Merlot and 10 % Petit Verdot, the complementary combination of each kind of plants ensuring the obtaining of the optimum composition, balance and nobility, necessary for the good ageing of the wine. Since 1868, this famous cru Bourgeois has been quoted in the second edition of the Ferret (specialised wine publication) at a time when delicacy and silky taste of those wines were already appreciated.
