La Violette du Manoir

François Thienpont Wines

All the vines grown for “La Violette” of Château Manoir du Gravoux are planted on a clay-limestone plateau which is on ideal location, thus offering favourable wine growing conditions and producing fleshy, fruity wines, with great character.
Among the vines of this plateau, 2 hectares were planted in 1958 and, being remarkably well-exposed, they produce naturally grapes with a complex and intense aromatic expression.
