This wine displays a deep red colour, the nose is full of ripe red berries, with slightly gamey notes, in the mouth there is fresh cherry fruit and supple velvety tannins. Enjoyable either young when the wines fresh fruit will entice you, or with a few years of age for the elegance and sophistication.

The Thienpont family name has been associated with greatness in Bordeaux for many years, more notably in the Right Bank Appellations of St Emilion and Pomerol. It may have raised some eyebrows, when in 1979 Luc took over Chateau Labergoce Zede in Margaux on Bordeaux Left Bank, but any doubts that he wouldn’t follow in his brother Jacque’s (Le Pin) and his cousin Alexandre’s (Vieux Chateau Certan) footsteps where abated as Labergorce Zédé became one of Bordeaux true rising stars.

Located on the edge of the Gironde in the Village of Margaux, the soils of this vineyard are made up of drained alluvium. Being so close the river estuary, Merlot is the grape of choice and makes up the lion share of the wine. It is very unusual to find a wine of this style and price level that has so much care and attention lavished upon it, the grapes are hand- harvested and the wine is made in much the same way as Luc’s finer cuvees.

30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 60% Merlot & 10% Petit Verdot

The grapes are harvested by hand with manual sorting taking place on a table in the vineyard. The fermentation takes place at the low temperature of 25°C. The wine is aged in tanks for around 11 months and lightly filtered before bottling, protecting the freshness of the fruit.

“Z” is a fresh and fruity drinking claret, ideal for sharing with friends over a light lunch.
