Tasting Note:

The Schist and Gneiss soils of Chateau Thébaud play host to some of the Lieubeau family’s oldest vines, up to 70 years old, and the resulting wine possesses a wonderful mineral elegance, the result of poor soils and the schist bedrock. Fresh golden fruit notes combine with a touch of smoky yeast character on the nose, the result of 36 months spent on the lees without battonage.
