Domaine Thibert (375ml), 2014, Mâcon-Fuissé “Bois de la Croix”

White, Old World, Chardonnay from Burgundy

 

Domaine Thibert Père et Fils is a family-owned domaine located in the small village of Fuissé in the heart of the Mâconnais.  There have been winegrowers in the family for seven generations, but it wasn't until 1967 when, with only two and a half hectares of vines, the parents of Christophe and Sandrine set up their own business.  Since then the domaine has gone from selling the whole production in bulk to bottling everything themselves. It has gone from just a few hectares to 22 hectares of vines. And in 2007 they slowly began moving towards organic winegrowing.

Low yields, judicious use of new oak and minimum filtration are what make the wines what they are.  Fermentation & maturing is 80% in stainless steel tanks and 20% in oak barrels. After 12 months of ageing the wines are bottled with minimum filtration. The wines are well structured and exhibit mineral, steely, fruit characters as well as displaying much finesse. This Macon-Fuissé is really a mini Pouilly-Fuissé. Its lovely nose of honey, pear and apple and great mouth feel are typical of a really good wine from this area.
