From families of winemakers for over severn generations, Andree Tene Thibert created his own domain in 1967 of 2.5 ha, in a house dating from the 19th Century. Their two children, Sandrine and Christoph, now co-manage the vineyard and incorporated the modern land in 1991 and 1999.

The beautiful Domaine Thibert is found within "The Macon" of Saône-et-Loire, one of the four departments of Burgundy. The varied geography benefits from being at the periphery of the Massif-Central mountainous region. In the vineyard more than half the surface area is ploughed to facilitate the reintroduction of micro-organisms to the soils. Vines are an average age of 40 years, yielding between 40 to 60 hl/ha. Grape varieties grown are Chardonnay (95%) and Gamay (5%) with annual production of around 140,000 bottles. In the cellar, vinification and ageing take place in vats and barrels, of which between 10 and 15% of the barrels are renewed annually. Christophe (pictured by the conveyor) and his sister Sandrine observe the minimum filtration techniques in the wine making.

Domaine Thibert Père & Fils is now 22 hectares of which all South Mâconnais are represented. Christoph has pursued low-energy and ecologically-responsible techniques recently including innovative barrel turning rollers, foil-lined roof structures and harnessing the thermal energy of a stream running though the vineyard to provide refrigeration of the fermentation areas during the summer.

Winemaker's Notes

The POUILLY-FUISSE "Vieilles Vignes" is the most rustic of the Thibert wines. In fact, it’s a very robust wine, creamy, toasty, and very aromatic with a large aptitude for further ageing.

You enjoy the best flavours and you taste the aromatic richness if you drink at temperatures from 12° to 14°. Our recommendation is to consume our POUILLY-FUISSE "Vieilles Vignes" with fish dishes a little spicy or with dishes very delicate like: crayfish, lobster, salmon, marinated seafood dishes. The 70 year-old vines have yielded an intense, mineral, aromatic wine that is lovely now but will age superbly.

Winemaker's Notes

The “Vignes Blanches” (White Vines) lives up to its name. It features a very pure bouquet, with delicate fruitiness, floral notes and a lovely iodized minerality, all well balanced because of the well-controlled ageing. This finely buttery wine, oozing with the freshness of Chardonnay, also reveals lovely scents of lime, liquorice, menthol and fresh hazelnuts.

St Veran Non-Filtre, , Domaine Thibert Père & Fils

St Veran Non-Filtre

Origin: Mâconnais, Burgundy, France

The vineyard, facing the sun due south, starts in the village of Chasselas. Originally limestone with “entroque” limestone (Bajocian period), loamy clay, as well as less limestone with rocky bands below 50cm.

Vinification

18 to 22 months, in barrels for 11 months and then in stainless steel vats for 11 months with little or no filtration when bottled.

Winemaker's Notes

The palate is generous, crisp, with an undercurrent of gentle acidity frame that flatters the taste buds. An ample and powerful attack opens on to a dense palate, perfectly balanced by a very fine slightly saline minerality. The elegant, yet structured, finish adds a noble touch to this great Saint-Véran.
