We are delighted to pair with François Thienpont. 3 bottles of each of the wines described below make this a superb introduction to Bordeaux wines from one of the great producers.
Pins des Dunes Blanc 2020, Côtes de Bordeaux
100% Sauvignon Blanc, this white wine combines subtle floral notes, aromatic richness and ample structure.
Sarmentine 2020, Monbadon
100% Merlot from Monbadon terroir - very similar to neighbouring appellation Saint-Émilion. Rich flavours, purity of fruit character with a lovely soft finish. Very approachable.
La Violette du Manoir 2016, Castillon
Big, ripe and full-bodied, mostly Merlot and a smidge of Cabernet Franc; plenty of plummy fruit, cinnamon and cloves with soft tannins. The property is owned by François Thienpont.
La Parcelle du Rocher 2016, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
80% Merlot & 20% Cabernet Franc from a 3-hectare property. Elegant red fruits with fine and delicate tannins on the finish. Very moreish.
