CHÂTEAU THIEULEY

BORDEAUX CLAIRET

High performance and state-of-the-art equipment is paramount , hence the need for constant investment in the cellar, reorganise the entire vineyard and modernisation of the machinery.
History
A 100% family-owned vineyard, the « Vignobles Courselle » started in 1950, when André Courselle bought Château Thieuley located in the famous France Bordeaux Region and lay the foundation of a great vineyard. In 1972, his son Francis Courselle, a young engineer and oenology professor, took over hte management of Thieuley vineyards. In 30 years, the acreage increased from 4 to 80 hectares spread over three properties : Château Thieuley, Clos Sainte Anne and Château Saint Genes. Marie and Sylvie Courselle, Francis Courselle’s two daughters, inherited from the family passion. Today, they took over the business and the destiny of Thieuley.
Terroir
The name « Thieule » comes from the ancient French word ‘tioule’, a tile factory that used the local clay, key component of the great Bordeaux vineyards. Our soils are a mix of clay and gravel. All the wines from our estate are blends of grape varieties : Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Semillon for the whites and Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon for the reds. The proportions vary according to the cuvée and vintage.

Millésime 2013
Club du Vin Le Figaro • Sélection • 23 Mai 2014
Millésime 2013 - Une tunique grenat brillante. Un nez délicat où se retrouvent fleurs blanches et petits fruits rouges mêlés. Du velours en bouche. Douceur, rondeur, structure caractérisent ce clairet d'un grand charme qui laisse le palais frais et l'esprit en liesse.
Gilbert et Gaillard • 88/100 • 2015
Millésime 2013 - Robe rose soutenu brillant. Nez net sur les fruits rouges (groseille, cerise, fraise). Bouche souple, ample, généreuse où le fruit s'exprime librement. Finale persistante sur les épices. Vin gourmand et séduisant à déguster en apéritif.
Gilbert et Gaillard • 88/100 • 2015
Vintage 2013 - Brilliant deep pink. Focused nose driven by redcurrant, cherry and strawberry. Supple, full and generous palate with full-on fruit expression. Persistent, spice-infused finish. A deliciously seductive wine that works best as an aperitif.
