Background

In 2010 Jacques Thienpont bought a wine estate ideally situated on the plateau of Saint-Emilion, facing the village and next to Ch√Ęteau Troplong Mondot. The first job enyailed a complete study of the different soils on the estate which led to important decisions being taken regarding the rootstocks, varieties, cover crops, trellising and canopy management of each individual parcel. Today, the estate is still a work in progress: almost 3 hectares of vines have been pulled out and will be replanted over the next few years. The precision shown in working each parcel differently both in the vineyard and in the winery is enabling us to make the most out of the varied and complex soils and subsequently bring out the best of the vineyard in the bottle.
