Domaine Thibert is situated in the village of Fuisse and is run by Christophe Thibert, assisted by wife Catherine and sister Sandrine who studied winemaking in New Zealand. There are 20 hectares in total, 95% planted to Chardonnay all farmed along organic lines, and their holdings include 8ha in Pouilly-Fuisse, 1ha in Pouilly-Vinzelles and 4ha in Macon-Fuisse, from where this spicy and rich white comes. Raised in 20% old oak, it would be difficult to find a better value Chardonnay. Superb!
A light golden in the glass. Cool yet rich aromas of golden apple, crushed mint and grilled nuts. On the palate, creamy, almost oily, with a faintly salty minerality and vibrant acidity leading to a mouthwatering finish suggesting flavours of peppery citrus fruits. Great food wine with baked or grilled sea bass, mixed greens with pecans, dried cranberries and goat's cheese or flounder stuffed with crabmeat.
