The Oddbins Take

Weirdly Thénac is famous for the Lascaux Caves (faded graffiti of fat horses), truffles (a fungus that is a favourite snack for swine but inexplicably costs humans a fortune), foie gras (the delicious side of animal cruelty) and its unspoilt countryside (yay, look another tree, yawn). In our opinion this is all wrong. The real flower of Thénac is this aptly named wine. The Fleur du Thénac is a modern French red that puts many of its limelight-hogging famous neighbours in Bordeaux to shame, proven by it being chosen to be served on Virgin Atlantic Upper Class flights.

Bob Tyrer in The Sunday Times Magazine, 16/2/14: "Red fruit and soft tannins in perfect balance, a lovely bargain from Château Thénac."
The Château Thénac estate is situated to the east of Bordeaux in the heart of the Périgord region, famed for its picturesque countryside, medieval castles, fine wines and black truffles. The estate is located in the hamlet of Thénac and comprises in total almost 200 hectares.
