Château Thibeaud-Maillet Pomerol 2016
- Textured, savoury
Château Thibeaud-Maillet is located in Pomerol, just 400 meters from Château Petrus, and was founded in the 1800s by the Thiebault family. Their vineyards are dedicated to merlot, and vines range from 25 to 50 years old.
The 2016 shows off the amazing quality fruit they are working with (meticulously) to achieve ripeness, power and vibrancy. At 5 years old, the 50% new oak has integrated into the profile of juicy plums, plump blueberries and liquorice spice. It’s a balanced wine with silky tannins and a long mineral finish. Not much of this wine was made, let alone imported to Singapore - so best move fast!
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
