A lemon-yellow in colour with green fruit aromas of melon, green apple and pear with a hint of butter from the oak. Medium-bodied on the palate with further floral notes and an elegant mineral backbone. The finish is lingering with notes of lime. Great food wine! Good with fricassee of veal kidneys with snails and herb butter, grilled poussin with garlic and limes or a chunk of tangy goat's cheese.
Domaine Thibert has been in the same family for over 50 years. Now run by husband and wife Christophe and Sandrine, they make high quality wines from their own grapes with respect for nature and tradition. Although not a certified organic winery, the Thiberts espouse natural remedies in the vineyard, working the soil to control vigour and yields. Severe bunch and leaf thinning and lutte raisonnee (no use of anti-rot sprays or insecticides here), aerating the soil to allow the roots to search more deeply for water and harvesting by hand at the maximum of maturity ensures wines of concentration and complexity. They have a range of wines in the Maconnais and Sub-Burgundy regions, each one expressing the unique characteristics of the appellations.
