Francs-Côtes de Bordeaux
The property was acquired by George Thienpont in 1946. He then replanted the vines towards the end of 1970’s. From 1983 onwards, his son Nicolas began crafting the wine. For several years now, vineyard replanting has helped to improve the wine’s precision thanks to rootstock tailored to the soil and high-quality clone or massal selection.
