Notes

Luc's minute 1.2 hectares plot continues to put many grander Margaux estates to shame. The 2008 offers a really perfumed, sexy bouquet of cool black and red berry fruit, cut flowers, minerals and graphite. The palate has a silky smooth texture, with ample plum liqueur fruit, cool cassis and a gravelly minerality. There are really precise, focused, fruit flavours. This is complex, sophisticated Margaux with none of the aggressive tannins seen elsewhere in the commune. Delicious.

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.
