- Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2013 Product #28945 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert ferments and ages his ripe Macon-Fuisse Chardonnay fruit in large, old barrels called foudre. These big barrels (each holding about 10x the typical barrique) provide his wine with just enough air contact to smooth off rough edges without adding any wood flavor or tannin. In 2013, this wine just sings. Generous aromas and flavors of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apple, toasted hazelnut and fresh butter coat your mouth before juicy, crisp, apple acidity wells up on the back. The texture and flavors are wonderfully rich – very Pouilly-Fuisse-like – and retain fantastic precision and vibrancy due to bright, juicy, citrusy, acidity. An absolute steal in drink-me-now white Burgundy Chardonnay at the regular price.
