Maison Thiriet is located opposite the Château de Comblanchien, in Côte-d'Or, in the heart of Côte-de Nuits , in Burgundy . After years of experience in both production and sales, Canadian-born cellar master Matt Chittick and adopted Burgundian Camille Thiriet demonstrated prudence and ambition in order to realize a long-term dream. , that of producing Burgundy wines under their own label.
They met while working for the Domaine de Bellene. 2016 was the first vintage of Maison Thiriet, it was made in a small 20m 2 garage and only four barrels of Bourgogne Blanc and three barrels of Côte de Nuits Villages were produced. Everything is done in an artisanal way, pumping over in a bucket, treading, ratchet press. No inputs, only native yeasts. The bottles are labeled and waxed by hand.
Macerated on the skins for three days, aged for 12 months in large oak barrels, 1198 bottles produced, 12.5% ABV. It shows the steely, crisp character of the Aligoté grape without being tight or mean, on the contrary it is relaxed and has a certain generosity. The aromatic expression is quite discreet but perfectly true to type, with citrus (lemon, tangerine), floral notes and a touch of warmth from the wood. There is a dreamy aspect to this balanced and flowing wine, a certain ease which conveys a lovely sense of comfort.
