Chateau Thibeaud-Maillet is a small 1.7ha family property in the commune of Maillet in Pomerol. It is located in the north-eastern corner of the appellation on the border with St Emilion. It was founded by the Thibeaud family in the early 19th century and is now in the hands of the Duroux family. Roger Duroux tended the vines until he was nearly 80 years old. His daughter, Geneviève, an former school teacher, took over the domaine in 2011. Their winemaker is David Arté who has years of experience making wine in the region. He carefully manages the alcohol in his wines, unlike so many modern day Pomerol where alcohol levels are climbing. Thibeaud-Maillet’s bottlings usually remain below 13% thanks to proper vineyard management to ensure ripe but balanced grapes with the requisite freshness.
Deeply pigmented ruby in the glass. The nose offers concentrated ripe fruit of blackberry, cherry, baking spices, vanilla, chocolate and a delicate oak presence. The palate offers opulent ripe dark fruit, cocoa and spice and well integrated ripe tannins and balanced freshness. The flavors linger pleasantly on the finish. Enjoy this wine with grilled meats and vegetables, steak, aged cheese.
Wowww this is good stuff! Chocolate, plums, cherry pie, vanilla bean and so much more. This is beautifully ripe, has really nice grainy tannins and ample acidity. Balanced alcohol and the bones to age for many years. What a perfect gift for the wine lover in your life.
