Château La Pensée – Julien Mingot

Julien Mingot grew up on the Château Maréchaux family estate near Libourne: 15 hectares of Appellation Bordeaux Supérieur. Even before completing his studies in Bordeaux and La Rochelle and in between his study trips to Spain and Chile, he gradually began to take care of his parents' estate.
La Pensée has become the estate's real driving force.
In 2013 he and his family were able to take over an estate called Coudereau, which included two hectares of Lalande de Pomerol (the neighbouring appellation of the world-famous commune of Pomerol) and five hectares of Bordeaux, which they renamed Château La Pensée (the thought). "We had been thinking a great deal about this estate and its owner for some time", Julien Mingot explains – "so the name suggested itself." The outstanding 2016 vintage is thus only Julien's fourth on this estate.
"Pomerol is a highly prestigious appellation", Julien says enthusiastically. "We see our ability to produce a 'little Pomerol' as a unique opportunity to give the great wines of the Gironde a run for their money." La Pensée has thus become the real driving force behind the estate. Made with care, it is particularly full-bodied, well structured and yet very velvety. It's made from 100% Merlot, which also gives it freshness and finesse. Fun to drink when young, it can also be laid down.
