Winner of the bronze medal in the Decanter World Wine Awards, this Chardonnay is clean, modern, and a perfect illustration of what happens when talented winemakers work hard to bring out their terroir. While Chardonnays from Southern Burgundy have traditionally been dry and mineral, Thibert’s are are silky, melony, with a lingering fruit finish. Best after some aging.

  • The nose suggests smoke, nuts, vegetation, black butter, and pungent spice. Concentrated ripe fruit and a candied note give an impression of sweetness, while citrus, smoky oak, and nuts round out the palate flavors. Rich and intense, but balanced by good acidity. An unusually silky texture and the lingering, fruity finish are especially appealing.

    Food pairing: Light meats, poultry and fish

Domaine Thibert Père et Fils

Run by the brother-sister team Christophe and Sandrine Thibert, the domaine has won at least 7 medals and 3 distinctions for its wine. Neal Martin (of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) called it “a treasure trove of… outstanding wines” and “one of the few Maconnais producers to really nail the idea of sélection parcellaire”.
