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

  • Closed at present but with hints of butter and pineapple, toast, and caramel on the nose. Highly extracted, concentrated, rich fruit flavors on the palate are balanced by a healthy dose of acidity that makes this wine drinkable now, but it’s still evolving and a little more time in bottle is likely to reveal greater subtlety.

    Food pairing: Herbed, grilled fish; oysters; pasta in light cream sauce; roasted chicken

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”.
