Château Manoir du Gravoux

François Thienpont Wines

The Manoir is an old medieval château located on the top of a dale. The combination of our rigorous work in the vineyard and ideal natural conditions (clay-limestones, south exposed slopes, natural draining), enable the grapes to reach perfect maturity. The berries are picked according to each parcel’s stage of maturation and a highly precise vinification can then be undertaken. Our work in the winery is based on accurate extractions, in order to obtain a very fine wine, with a great fruit character and elegant tannins.
