A clean, modern wine that perfectly illustrates what happens when talented winemakers work hard to bring out their terroirs. While Chardonnays form Southern Burgundy have traditionally been dry and mineral, Thibert’s wines are silky, with a lingering fruit finish.

  • Sweet baking spice, ripe fruit, and mineral notes feature on the nose with hints of vegetation and confectioneries in the background. Light on the palate, with lively acidity balancing an impression of sweetness. A floral element, chalky minerality, and savory notes show on a dry finish displaying lingering, over-ripe, red apple flavors. Youthful, but tasty now. Likely to drink well through 2019.

    Food pairing: Lightly roasted chicken or shellfish

  • A pretty, pale gold with an attractive, expressive nose suggestive of sweet melon, citrus, and butter but with sappy and floral hints as well, eventually even developing some delicate but more exotic notes such as coconut. A little reserved at first, but, once open, achieves a remarkable balance between evolving, rich, almost unctuous, buttery characteristics and a taut acidity. A marvel of poise. A real overachiever for this appellation. Delicious now, but likely to improve.

    Food pairing: crab, oysters, mussels, seafood pasta, chicken or veal with wild mushroom cream sauce
