Notes

Luc Thienpont continues to make first rate unclassified Margaux from his unique parcel of old vines, and his 2007 is easily as good as anything offered by members of the Union des Grands Crus, if not better. There is such power and finesse, and despite the vintage there is no lack of richness in the fruit, enough to balance effortlessly the 100% new oak in which the wine is aged. Lots of fresh berry fruit on the nose, the tannins are big but balanced on the palate, there is a pure core of red berries, ripe and rich that develop to show smoky, meaty character. Very good indeed.

Clos des Quatre Vents

Clos des Quatre Vents

In 1999 Luc Thienpont bought an exceptional 2 ha plot situated next to Deyrem Valentin in Margaux. A large percentage of the vineyards are planted with 80 year old ungrafted Cabernet Sauvignon vines producing a vastly concentrated wine that Luc ages in 100% Seguin Moreau oak. Only half of his purchase is considered by Luc to be good enough for the ‘Grand Vin’. Complex and silky, the wines show remarkable balance, length and charm.
