Tasting Notes

The 2017 L’Hêtre, the newest property from Jacques Thienpont and Fiona Morrison, offers red summer fruit on the nose, punnets of strawberry on a hot July day mixed with rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple fleshy tannins. It is not a complex Côtes de Castillon and it needs a little more delineation on the finish, but it has an easygoing charm that will make it delicious to drink over several years.
