- Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2015 Product #31059 (In Stock)
This is getting silly. This wine has been the white Burgundy steal of the store for 4 years now, but the 2015 jumps up into a whole new quality tier. 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.
Aromas and flavors feature rich, ripe, pear, apple, and peach fruit with accents of toasted hazelnut and grilled pineapple. Full and fleshy enough to give almost any Pouilly-Fuisse a run for its money, but crisp and minerally on the mouthwatering finish. You've got to try this stuff.
