Welcome to Belgium L'Hêtre
Come and celebrate the arrival of our new wine, L'Hêtre and his younger brother, Raison d’Hêtre, at our Launch Tasting Party on Saturday September 15th 2018 from 10.30 a.m. until 12.30 p.m. It’s the perfect way to get acquainted with this exciting new release.
When Jacques Thienpont visited this estate in the Côtes de Castillon during the harvest of 2015, he was immediately struck by the great location and the stunning view, perched at the end of the limestone plateau that runs eastwards from Saint-Emilion. Realizing the esate’s potential, Jacques purchased the domain with his sister, Anne De Raeymaeker. The families hired Maxime Thienpont, their nephew who had grown up at another family estate Château Labégorce Zédé in Margaux as manager and renamed the property L’Hêtre (the name of a beech tree in French), thus continuing the arboreal theme that Jacques has used for all his estates.
The event is expected to fill up quickly so subscribe now and don’t forget to bring a wine-loving friend!
Please let us know if you would like to join us afterwards for a simple lunch in a local restaurant in the heart of the Flemish Ardennes. We will get back to you with the price and location of the lunch nearer the time.
Saturday September 15th - 10.30 a.m. until 12.30 p.m.
Hof te Cattebeke
