Le Vignoble Thudinien

In 2001 Philippe Dumont, owner of the Biercée Distillery, responded to a call for projects from the commune of Thuin and took up the slightly crazy challenge of planting vines in the terraced gardens that cascade down from the town centre. A thousand Regent vines were to be planted on nine plots covering a total area of 30 ares. Following a restructuring of the Biercée Distillery shareholding body in 2010, the vineyard passed into the hands of the non-profit association Le Vignoble Thudinien (The Thuin Vineyard), but the Clos des Zouaves is still vinified and bottled at the distillery.

Clos des Zouaves

The disastrous harvest of 2012 prompted Christophe Mulatin and Pierre Gérard, the mainsprings of The Thuin Vineyard, to develop a fortified sweet wine obtained by mutage, along the lines of the natural sweet wines from the South of France. It proved highly successful and in 2013 they opted to concentrate solely on this red dessert wine.

 

   Rubis-coloured robe of medium intensity.

   Allow the wine to breathe in the glass to release its red fruit aromas.

   Voluptuous in the mouth, marked by elegance. Impression of biting into crystallised cherries.

   A chocolate dessert makes the perfect pairing.

   12-14°C.
