CHATEAU DU PETIT THOUARS

37500 Saint-Germain-sur-Vienne - Loire

When Yves and Marguerite du Petit Thouars married in 1974, they couldn't imagine that 35 years later they would be managing a 15-hectare vineyard with a fully-equipped cellar, nestled in natural limestone caves. It all began when they found archives in the family château (bought in 1634 under the advice of Cardinal Richelieu, and passed directly from father to son, down to the current generation), which showed that there had been vines there in previous centuries. Faithful to the spirit of the time and their ancestors' adventurous nature, they planted new vines and developed them to ensure that each vintage would be better than the previous one. Marguerite du Petit Thouars even became a very respected wine writer, in collaboration with Cuisine et Vins de France, Le Figaro Magazine and Amateur de Bordeaux.

I have not consumed any of the wine. I am concerned that the alcohol content at 14.5% (!!!) is much higher than you say on your website.

Dear Mister Robert, Thank you for your feedback and thank you for pointing that out. The alcohol level can varies from one year to another and sometimes, winemakers forget to change it in the description. We are going to fix that error immediately. If you have any problem with the wine, don’t hesitate to send us an email to talk about it. We wish to apologize for the inconvenience caused and hope you will enjoy the wine. Team Avenue Des Vins
