Vignoble Mingot is a third generation family operated winery, on the right bank of Bordeaux in the area of Savignac-de-l’Isle. This is where their historical Chateau Marechaux property is located 7 kms north of the vineyards in Lalande de Pomerol. Julien Mingot son of Michel is in charge of the operation with approximately 21 ha’s of predominantly Merlot planted, including small parcels of the other classic Bordeaux companions.

In 2015 Julien launched a new wine, Château La Pensée; which represents the Lalande de Pomerol vineyard acquired in recent years, producing a promising addition to their range. Seen more frequently in Europe, Château La Pensée is a small two-hectare estate in the AOP Lalande de Pomerol. Aged in 20% new barriques, this gives the wine from the 40-year-old Merlot vines structure, nobility and flavor. The top vintage 2019 resulted in an opulent wine with perfectly ripe tannins, which is pleasantly smooth even in its youth. Juicy dark fruits and a hint of licorice can be found in the long-lasting finish. A remarkable right bank Bordeaux at a very fair price. 

The Mingot family have also integrated a range of red wines with a modern concept named ‘Pur’; a natural, low sulphur, monovarietal and quirky labelled Bordeaux Supérieur. This range is comprised of a Merlot and a Cabernet Franc with a Malbec in the pipeline as vineyards reach proper maturity in years to come. Vignoble Mingot is a producer that delivers superb quality and a great representation of right bank Bordeaux, providing excellent value across the portfolio.

The 2019 La Pensee displays a deep garnet-purple color and notions of blackberry pie, baking spices, warm plums and boysenberries with touches of woodsmoke, cracked black pepper and wilted roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a racy line lifting the densely packed black fruits, supported by ripe, rounded tannins, finishing savory. 90-92
