Château Le Thys 2012 - Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Cadillac is a small unknown appellation of Bordeaux, which is a shame as there are magnificent wines elaborated there! Château Le Thys is a good example. Even if it was acquired a few years ago by its neighbour Château Birot, grapes are still vinified separately so as to reveal the whole potential of this specific terroir along the Garonne River. 

 

Terroir

Château le Thys’ vines cover around 40 hectares and their specificity is that they are surrounded by tree hedges. It’s a great perk as it protects the grapes from strong winds in their youth (when they are too fragile to stand it) and the soil from erosion.

If you like merlot, this wine is for you. Château Le Thys is the perfect example of what can give well grown merlot. Indeed, it displays seductive aromas and a silky texture with thin and refined tannins. This explains why merlot can be found all over the world! Chile, Australia, Hungary... it is everywhere!

lemillesimeVintage

2012 was a wet hence complicated vintage in Bordeaux. The torrential rains that fell from the skies throughout the first semester of 2012 favoured the development of funguses on the vines. But funguses are spread by wind, and the specificity of Château le Thys’ vines is that they are surrounded by tree hedges that protected them. Phew! 

lerecoltantA winemaker, a family

If on a trip in the Bordeaux region you feel like tasting Château Le Thys’ wines, you’ll be welcomed in Chateau Birot, an astonishing 18th century castle. It was entirely renovated in 1989 by Eric and Helene Fournier-Casteja. Nowadays, two out of their five sons rule the Family Estate.
