8 Apr 2010 quote, by Jancis Robinson
“Ch Guillot Clauzel 2009 Pomerol, 17, Drink 2016-2024,
Initially quite fresh and then notes of ripeness right up to the limit but – just – not over the limit. Appetising dry finish. Some real nerve and minerality here. Really interesting and, most unusually for 2009, there is a lovely length to this wine. When I turned the bottle I saw that this is the wine from Dominique Thienpont of Le Pin and VCC family fame. Really pretty nice and complex. This is a property quite close to Le Pin and here's what I wrote about it when I last tasted it during the 2006 primeurs: Gravel over clay which is higher than at Le Pin so less water stress here than at Le Pin, according to Dominique Thienpont, who sells this wine (the property is looked after by François Despagne).”
Now the commercial interest are taken over by his sons, Jan and Florian Thienpont.
