There are few families that are in the top echelon of every wine category they own.  When it comes to Bordeaux's Right Bank, the Thienpont family is one to reckon with!  Since their marriage in 1997, Jacques & Fiona (MW in 1994) have been dividing their time among their three estates: Château Le Pin (Pomerol) , Château l'IF (St Emilion) and now Château l'Hêtre (formerly named Château Goubau) (Castillon).  The iconic Le Pin retails for thousands of dollars a bottle every vintage.  Fortunately, the winemakers offer the market a delight with Château l'Hêtre.  Given the Thienpont family's passion for naming their wine after trees, pine (Le Pin), yew (l'If), starting with 2016, beech (l'Hêtre).  Treat yourself and friends to a blind tasting of this wine, you won't be able to tell its amazingly advantageous price point. This is a fantastic wine we won't hesitate to recommend to every level of wine drinkers.

La Raison d'Hêtre ("The Reason To Be") is the second wine of L'Hêtre, a symbol of the owner's ambitious vision for the property now under their ownership. La Raison d’Hêtre is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc as well but from the young vines and from the parcels of clay-limestone on the lower slopes. It has a pretty dark violet colour, is round and fresh with red fruit aromas. Its taste is lively and spicy with attractive fruit/tannin balance.
