A Castillon ridge mix of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this perfumed wine has new wood and mint flavours that balance with the black fruits and tannins. It’s ripe, with fresh acidity as well as structure. Only 8,500 bottles were made from 7.5 acres.
The second vintage for Nicolas Thienpont was made from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the wine is a step up after the debut vintage. Liquorice and dark berries provide a sweet, fleshy, jammy wine with freshness and minerality.
