Description

Camille Thiriet is a star in the making. Sharp as a tack and hell bent on creating the finest wines by the modest means at her disposal, she has been producing characterful Burgundies from a 20m-squared garage behind her parents’ B&B, the statuesque Chateau Comblanchien in the Côte de Nuits, since 2016. With a few old vines of her own, Thiriet farms organically, working the land by hand and with her two horses, Obelix and Véga. Grapes are pumped over, crushed under foot and go into a ratchet press, with bottling, labeling and waxing, again, all done by hand.

Thiriet works alongside her partner, Canadian-born cellar master Matt Chittick, whom she met while they were both working at the Domaine de Bellene, in Beaune. She subsequently gained experience at Domaine de la Côte in California and he is now Aubert de Villaine’s winemaker at Domaine de Villaine in the Côte Chalonnaise.

This wine has a lot of tension; it is dense with lively acidity, fine minerality, subtle salinity, and opulent mid-palate. If you are a fan of Chassagne-Montrachet, Chablis Crus to cream textured Chardonnay, you don’t want to miss this one.
