Tasting Notes:

Bright, with a lively mix of pepper, anise, tobacco, black cherry and mulled black currant flavors that mesh nicely through the medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2016. 10,250 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

A light to mid-weight effort from the Cotes de Francs, this wine reveals a deep ruby/plum color, a touch of herbaceousness, and sweet red and black fruits. Drink this attractive 2012 over the next 5-6 years.

Tasting Notes:

This shows class for the vintage with smoke, meat, berry and currant character. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Refined and polished. Better in 2017.

description Producer information Professional reviews

One name and one family have contributed to the breakthrough of the appellation: the “Thienpont tribe”. This family of negociants, originating in Oudenaarde (Flanders) also owns Vieux Chateau Certan, one of the best-known chateaus in Pomerol. The patriarch, George Thienpont, bought Chateau Puygueraud, which dominates the whole appellation, in 1946. Upon his arrival he found the vineyards in ruins and set about revitalising them through the planting of cereals and raising of cattle. It was only at the end of the 1970s that he began replanting the vineyards and in 1983, the first wine was produced. Today, the chateau produces three wines: Chateau Puygueraud, Chateau Lauriol and Cuvée George and it is one of George’s sons, Nicolas, who manages the vinification at the different properties.
