    I read somewhere (annoyingly, I can’t find the link) that Ch-d-Jacques reduced their number of single-vineyard bottlings some time around 2010, in order to strengthen the regular cuvee. I could have sworn that Les Thorins was one of the ones to go… which would be a great shame in light of your review of it. Is there any chance that they make all the cuvees, then blend some later? Or do some cuvees get re-issued in great vintages? Or did I just dream this whole matter?!

      Hi Peter,
      I seem to remember that Cyril mentioned that some parcels were occasionally part of the blending, but it seems that they are moving away from that. I visited des Jacques relatively early in my trip, but the Thorins would easily remain in my top half-dozen wines of the trip.

    2010 seems to be the last vintage of Thorins. Saw an offer recently for the 2015s and Thorins was absent too.
