Nicolas Thienpont acquired three hectares in the Côtes de Castillon in July 2011. The vines are located on the top of the limestone plateau, with rock beneath red clay. The wine has become more rounded with a denser texture, supplementing the finesse, sophistication and minerality of this new cru.
A Côtes de Castillon ridge mix of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this perfumed wine has new wood and mint flavours that balance with the black fruits and tannins. It's ripe, with fresh acidity as well as structure. There are just 8,500 bottles from just 3 hectares.
