Tasting Note:

Jacques Thienpont's new venture in St Emilion is situated near to Troplong Mondot on the clay and limestone Cote. His nephew Cyril Thienpont (Nicolas' son) has been in charge of wine-making, although Jacques hinted that he would be taking more of a lead in the future. The 2012 is very pure and seductive with notes of blackcurrant jam and fine herbs and rosemary. Svelte, bright and very moreish, this 18000 bottle cuvee will be worth looking out for.
