Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2013 Product #28945 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2013 Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse 2013

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.

Dom Des Vercheres Macon Villages 2012 Product #28733 (In Stock)
Dom Des Vercheres Macon Villages 2012 Dom Des Vercheres Macon Villages 2012

The Dupuis family farms their two plots of Macon Villages vineyard with uncommon care - minimal sprays, no inorganic fertilizers, and alternating rows of grass and straw to prevent erosion and strengthen the soil.  This lovely 2012 blends the stone fruit and citrus flavors from the older vineyards (covered in white pebbles) with the minerality of fruit from the other, very rocky, second site.  No oak gets in the way of the citrus, melon, and ripe apple fruit flavors or the stony minerality peaking through the creamy texture.  A lovely Burgundy value.

Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Product #24753 (In Stock)
Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008 Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2008

Everything takes a big step up in this single vineyard wine from one of Thibert’s two best sites.  The Burghound review captures this well – rich, complex, and loaded with driving minerality.  Outstanding

“Moderate wood doesn't detract from the otherwise fresh, bright and expressive nose that offers up white orchard fruit aromas, subtle spice hints and floral notes that precede rich, sappy and admirably pure flavors that possess plenty of acid buffering dry extract and excellent length as well as notably more complexity. Sweet Spot/Outstanding”Allen Meadows 89-92 points

Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Les Champs 2009 Product #25975 (In Stock)
Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Les Champs 2009 Dom Thibert Pouilly Fuisse Les Champs 2009

Arguably Christophe’s top wine, this single vineyard  Chardonnay includes a slug of super-concentrated fruit from 100 year-old vines.  There are currently no 1er Cru designated vineyards in Pouilly Fuisse – although Christophe is leading the fight to create a classification – but this is absolutely 1er Cru quality and every bit equal to top Cote de Beaune 1er Crus that cost twice as much.

“A distinctly ripe nose of peach, white flower and orange peel gives way to round and very rich medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that confers a textured quality to the notably intense and relatively dry finish. Solid quality here.”Allen Meadows 89-91 points
