Owned by Luc Thienpoint of Clos des Quatre Vents, this wine shop opened in July 2008, and now brings the total of wine boutiques in Margaux to three. It has a good range of Thienpont wines (I recommend the Entre-Deux-Mers from one of Luc’s brothers, called Le Roc du Château Pellebouc), and many others from around the Médoc and Bordeaux, plus decanters, glasses, aprons and other wine accessories. There are usually 6–12 wines on taste. Luc said he is considering opening a wine bar at the back of the shop over the summer months, which would be a great idea. The winery northeast of the village towards the Relais de Margaux can also be visited.

Useful information: Shop is open daily from 9.00-19.00 in winter and 9.00-20.00 in summer. Selection of wines for free tasting. Visits to winery by appointment Monday to Friday 9.00-17.00. Shipping worldwide and en primeur wines that can be purchased direct from the shop.
