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

  • A delicately perfumed, complex nose, initially with floral scents, minerals (talc), toast, and subtle pineapple, evolves in the direction of riper, lusher scents. Achieves a surprising balance, managing to seem rich—with toasty, buttery flavors—but not at all heavy; in fact, it has an almost ethereal quality, a lightness that rests on a backbone of acidity that seems perfectly adjusted to the richness it offsets, an acidity that holds through a lingering finish. Among the finest Pouilly-Fuissé wines you’re likely to encounter. Delicious now, but will improve.

    Food pairing: Aperitif, fish—grilled or meunière, scallops, mushroom risotto

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”.
