Jacques and Fiona worked with Château Respide in the Graves to make their own blend for the Thienpont Selection. Using the lovely 2018 vintage, a blend of 50% Merlot, 30% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, they concentrated on making a wine which would mature well over the next 5-10 years. The wine is now five years old, has a garnet colour, and a nose which is reminiscent of autumn berries and plums. The wine is poised on the boundary between fruit and beguiling tertiary aromas of tobacco, wood smoke and oak. There is a spicy reverberation and a silky structure in the finish. An elegant wine that is reaching maturity with classic Bordeaux flavours.
