Chateau Trimoulet Grand Cru St Emilion
This small right bank property is owned by the Jean family and has been in the family hands since 1802 so a good amount of knowledge has been handed down for generations. The family also owns the more famous property of Couvent des Jacobins. The current manager of the chateau is Michel Jean.
In recent years, Nicolas Thienpont has been consulting at the property and has made changes in both the vineyard and cuverie - one of the major changes being the reduction of yield and the xclusion of some of the lesser good parcels of vines from the property's main wine.
The blend is as you would expect, a majority of Merlot with a decent dollop of Cabenet Franc and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. This is always a good bet for younger drinking.
