F. Thienpont Rouge et BlancFrançois Thienpont Wines
Located in the appellation Bordeaux plateaux, this vineyard selected by Terra Burdigala is monitored, like any others, by our team all year around. Our work in the vineyard is always based on our two major concerns which are optimal maturity and perfect sanitary standards. Regarding the vinification, our principles are simple, this means gentle extractions in order to respect the fruit and produce a tender and fresh style wine, with great flavour. Ageing for a short period of time and early bottling contribute to preserve the fruit flavour. Breeding short, early bottling to trap the fruit.
