Pouilly-Fuissé "Héritage" Christophe Thibert 2019
Domaine Christophe Thibert, Mâconnais
The story of Domaine Thibert reads like a veritable saga. This family of artisan winemakers has been living at the heart of Fuissé village since at least 1668.Both from a long line of winemakers, Andrée and René Thibert started with a tiny plot in 1967. In 1991, their son Christophe came back to the Domaine, and his sister Sandrine joined him in managing the Domaine in 1999. Leveraging their deep-seated knowledge of the region’s vineyards, the inter-generational knowledge and their experience, today the wines of Domaine Thibert reflect and express this “savoir-faire”.
This cuvee is an assemblage from several plots in varied terroirs. On average, the vines are 75 years old. Clay-limestone, composed of clay marl and colluvial limestone deposits.
The quality of the grapes on these old vines explains the vibrant intensity of this wine. The bouquet is deep, pure and discreet. Vieille Vignes is full-bodied, solid, dense and long-lasting wine, sustained by a delicate mineral bitterness.
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
