CHATEAU
The history of the Thienpont family goes back when Camille Thienpont already created a wine merchant house in Belgium in 1842.
In the early 1920’s Chateau Troplong Mondot in Saint Emilion and Vieux Chateau Certan in Pomerol were bought.
At this time, Georges Thienpont was a successful wine merchant in Belgium and northern part of Europe. After the world crisis in the 1930’s Georges kept Vieux Chateau Certan located in Pomerol (About 35 acres).
The properties located on the right bank of la Garonne river are sometimes microscopic in comparison with their counterparts in the Medoc. And yet, the wines that come from there know for some of them a worldwide fame. Le Pin, of recent notoriety, is one among those exception of the right bank. In 1979, the Thienpont family, which also owns Vieux Chateau Certan, acquires a small one-hectare vineyard, hitherto given by the owner, Mrs Laubie to a sharecropper. Six years later, the family will acquire a second hectare. Instead of integrating this small vineyard in the Vieux Chateau Certan (which has fourteen hectares of vines), the owners choose to exploit appart its specific terroir.

92% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc

To Drink till 2015
this dark garnet-colored wine has notes of licorice, loamy soil scents, sweet black cherries and currants along with some truffle and vanilla. The wine is medium-bodied with a certain firmness and delineation, and less of the charm, glycerin, and opulence that the ripe, more generous vintages provide
Wine Spectator: 95/100
