A very unusual vintage!

Even though the first six months of the year were particularly rainy, flowering took place quickly and evenly during one of the rare dry spells. This period was followed by a long stretch of hot, dry weather lasting from mid-June to mid-September.

This series of extreme conditions raised fears about the fragility of grapes and vines. However, meticulous work in the vineyard made it possible to anticipate and protect vines from the drought this summer and to reveal the crop’s full potential.

The harvest was very spread out and the grapes in each plot were picked when perfectly ripe. Every aspect of 2016 was conducive to producing a great vintage!

«Ideal ripening in 2016 enabled us to make very rich, deeply-coloured wines with no heaviness or hints of cooked fruit. They are very fresh on both the nose and the palate and have huge ageing potential!»

Château Du Glana is located on the Route des Grands Vins running parallel to the Gironde estuary, between the towns of Beychevelle and Saint-Julien, opposite the famous Château Ducru-Beaucaillou.  

Château Du Glana was constructed in 1870 by Mr Nadeau, the city of Blaye's architect, for Mr Cayx. At about this time, a small (5 hectares) vineyard of gravelly soil was consolidated thanks to the purchase of several plots of land from neighbouring Château Saint-Pierre.

After several other owners, Mr Gabriel Meffre bought Château Du Glana in 1961. He increased the vineyard to 43 hectares in the following years by acquiring several plots belonging to third growth Château Lagrange.

Helped by his young sons Ludovic and Julien, Jean-Paul Meffre now looks after the estate. They are motivated by a major ambition: to achieve the estate's full potential. Surrounded by some of finest great growths in the Médoc, Château Du Glana has made tremendous strides in quality since 1999.

Much thought has gone into making improvements over the past several years and the vineyard has been entirely renovated. Château Du Glana produces modern elegant wines of character reflecting the estate's superb terroir.

The estate's completely restored buildings (vat room, grape reception area, ageing cellar, offices, and reception room), the immense care taken in the vineyard, and precious winemaking advice from Professor Denis Dubourdieu provide a sound equilibrium between modern methods and respect for tradition. Château Du Glana is thus a well-balanced, velvety, and complex wine enjoyable young, but also with excellent ageing potential (over ten years).
