The home estate of Englishman Jonathan Malthus, the 2012 Teyssier (12,000-15,000 cases produced) is composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Made in a seductive, charming, fruit-forward style, the 2012 is round and medium-bodied with notes of black fruits, loamy soil, underbrush, licorice and vanillin. It should drink nicely for 7-8 years..Robert Parker, April/2013
Wine has been made at the estate since the 1700’s. At one stage in the nineteenth century it was the largest estate in the neighbourhood. At the time of purchase however it had been reduced to just five hectares of depleted vineyard. Since then a completely new team has transformed the wine and the estate. Renovation in every sense - estate, vineyard, winery, barrel cellar, and the fundamental approach to making wine means that Château Teyssier is widely regarded as a new-wave, modern-style wine from Saint Emilion. Most importantly the wine is now sought after by a loyal following. Eighty-five per cent Merlot with the remainder being met by Cabernet Franc, the wine originates from the communes of Saint Sulpice de Faleyrens and Vignonet. These communes provide terroir that produce a wine that may be attacked on release or laid down for a few years. The approach in winemaking, which has all the benefits of the modern equipment afforded by the more senior wines, is new world in style. Château Teyssier, is award winning, spicy, velvety, and ripe, but above all, pivots on its expression of fruit.
