DOMAINE PIERRE THIBERT 2017 REDS CASE
Pierre Thibert is a ‘garagiste’ no more! And we’re here to report on big changes in this small-production, top-quality, self-made domain. Renting vines in the appellations of ‘Bourgogne’ and ‘Passetoutgrain,’ while still working outside his own domain for another winemaker, the Domaine Pierre Thibert got off to a modest quiet start. Soon though Pierre was able to bring some Chorey-les Beaune and Aligote vines into his domain. Some purchased, some ‘en fermage’ (a sort of ‘share-cropping’ current in Burgundy), the list of wines grew slowly at first. Finally came the vines in Nuits St. Georges and Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru.
At present, he oversees about 10 acres of vines. Pierre takes pride in his single-vineyard appellations. But everything he touches show the mark of great respect for Nature and attention to detail in the vineyard.
It's a mixed case of Pierre Thibert's range and versatility. Classy, small-production Red Burgundy: I should have you right there.
It's a mixed case of 4 different Thiberts, 3 bottles each PLUS GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED.
Bourgogne 'Les Bouffales' 2017
A single vineyard Bourgogne is often a thing of wonder, a reflection of the precise terroir of the village it comes from. And this Bourgogne shouts Nuit St. Georges. A superbly positioned parcel. Blackcurrant and pepper, supple in its attack, complete through the mid-palate with a finish on fruit. Great structure, a wine that drinks above its appellation.
Chorey les Beaune 2017
Delicate and supple, rich and full of Pinot Noir character. Crimson with classic red and black fruits set off by earth and spice. Good and subtle tannic structure finishing long on fruit
Nuits St Georges 2017
Black fruits layered on a complex background of coffee and spice, with fine tannins already melting in. Structured but still fluid, a great texture. Complete through the mid-palate with a long finish on cherry fruit and structure.
Nuits St Georges 1er Cru 'Rue de Chaux' 2015
As you might expect, this young Nuits-St. Georges Premier Cru is full and earthy with a good tannic structure. The vintage brings good acidity which makes the fruit lively and juicy, like biting into a bunch of grapes. There's a floral undertone, and lots of blackcurrant fruit in there. Young and full of promise.
