Chateau Thibeaud-Maillet Pomerol
Chateau Thibeaud-Maillet
France - Bordeaux - Pomerol

Chateau Thibeaud-Maillet comes from 25 to 50 years old Merlot grapes planted on the plateau called "Maillet", east of Pomerol, on sandy-gravelly soils that are favorable to the good maturity of the grapes and result in supple and round wines with power, finesse and of intense purple color.

This 100% Merlot offers a rich and elegant nose of dark currants with a hint of leather, pencil shavings and some dark flowers, along with well-integrated touches of wood. The wine is nicely balanced and layered with fine acidity and silky tannins. Great length with clean fruit, minerals and spices in the aftertaste.

Harvest is done manually and the berries are selected with optical sorting before entering the cellar. Fermentations are carried out at controlled temperature with 3 to 4 weeks of skin contact. Once the malolactic fermentation is completed; the wines are put into barrels (50% new) and aged for 12 months. The estate uses three barrels from three different coopers : Vicard (Charentes)supplying most of the barrels with medium toast and a fine grain, Cadius from Burgundy supplies also fine grain/ medium toasts barrels and last but not least Sylvain, a local cooper is used for three barriques a year, those bring a bit more austerity but also a certain backbone to the blend.
