Another strong effort from Puygueraud (the birthplace of the Thienpont family) the 2011 was fashioned from modest yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend of 75% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec... Another strong effort from Puygueraud (the birthplace of the Thienpont family) the 2011 was fashioned from modest yields of 35 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend of 75% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec came in at 14.5% natural alcohol. The wine's dense blue/purple color is accompanied by copious aromas of blueberries blackberries charcoal and graphite. Clearly performing well above its modest pedigree this sleeper of the vintage possesses medium to full body beautifully pure fruit and a decade's worth of drinkability.

Lovely aromas of crushed berries such as blue berries and raspberries. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins and a lovely fresh finish. Well done for vintage.

The vines in this 23-hectare vineyard are planted on clay and limestone soils with are on average 30-years old. Aged for 12 to 16 months in 25% to 30% new barrels. Nearly opaque purple core with a fuchsia rim. Primary aromas of blackberry and plum with some earthy loamy soil and pain grille aromas on the nose. Concentrated black fruits dominate the palate with good persistence and powerful intensity. The finish is exceptional for the price point showing resolved and extremely fine tannins. Nicolas Thienpont consults. Enjoy on release and over the following 5-7 years.
