Macon-Fuisse Domaine Christophe Thibert, round, soft, Chardonnay. The Macon-Fuisse from Christophe Thibert is really a mini-Pouilly. With its lovely nose of honey, pear and apple and great mouthfeel it will have you checking the label to see if you’re not drinking a more illustrious name. This is a Chardonnay for those who say they don’t like Chardonnay, a wine of truly delightful charm and drinkability, it is impossible not to enjoy. Richer than a Chablis, but with enough balance and freshness to steer well clear of being cloying.

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.

    A very pleasant wine with flavours of melon, and peach and yet not acidic. Ideal with chicken dishes, seabass and seabream
