Winery Notes:
It is well known that gifted winemaker Jacques Thienpont has a knack for sourcing unique and exceptional properties.

His latest acquisition reaches beyond the ultra-premium micro-cuvées he is known for with Château Le Pin and Château L'if. Château Goubau (to be renamed Château l?Hêtre with the 2016 vintage) matches exceptional quality with value, and naturally, a unique microclimate within the Côtes de Castillon appellation.

At 100 m on the Saint Philippe d?Aiguilhe plateau, the property is situated at the highest point in Bordeaux.

Produced from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the clay and chalk subsoil is perfectly suited to the biodynamically-farmed vines.

Here is an exclusive opportunity to work with M. Thienpont's first vintage with the property, which is all but certain to go up in value in vintages to come...as demonstrated by Thienpont's l'If, which has more than tripled in price since the first release in 2012.
