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.
For Vézelay 2020, I enjoyed the floral notes, high tone of just riped small pears and peaches, followed by a touch of menthol. This wine has a lot of tension; it is dense with lively acidity, fine minerality, subtle salinity, and opulent mid-palate. This is almost an all-rounded indulgence: light apetizer, fine seafood in cold & warm preparation to white meat. If you are a fan of Chassagne-Montrachet, Chablis Crus to cream textured Chardonnay, you don't want to miss this one.
