Thibert Macon Villages Fuisse 375ml (375ml)
HALF BOTTLE! Belonging to families of winegrowers for 7 generations, Andree and Rene Thibert created their own estate in 1967 in the heart of the village of Fuisse. Their children, Sandrine and Christophe, have taken over the estate which comprises 28 hectares that spreads over the southern Maconnais. The vineyard is cultivated using sustainable agriculture methods so as to respect the soil and the vines.
This is just as good as it’s more famous neighbour, Pouilly-Fuissé. This Chardonnay displays a lively balance of fruit and minerality that characterizes Domaine Thibert’s wines.
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”. – eRobertParker.com
