Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 96 TA.
"Pure Merlot and 100% new oak: the recipe sounds as if it never changes at this Pomerol jewel, but Jacques Thienpont is a winemaker who knows how to adapt to the vintage, drawing the best out of his small plot of grapes. The gravelly, sandy soils have yielded a wine that is minerally and quite light, but with hidden profundities. Fine, aromatic, Merlot with a feminine touch, reflecting the influence of Thienpont's wife, the British Master of Wine, Fiona Morrison." Tim Atkin MW, TimAtkin.com, Apr 2012
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,250
