Domaine Thibert, Vignes Blanches, Pouilly Fuisse
The plot is situated above Fuissé in the middle part of the slopes, facing south by southeast. The steady slope, with a gradient of about 23%, enables ideal drainage of the soil and provides concentration and opulence to the wine.
The “Vignes Blanches” (White Vines) lives up to its name. It features a very pure bouquet, with delicate fruitiness, floral notes and a lovely iodized minerality, all well balanced because of the well-controlled ageing. This finely buttery wine, oozing with the freshness of Chardonnay, also reveals lovely scents of lime, liquorice, menthol and fresh hazelnuts.
The combination of tautness, finesse and energy creates a feeling of gentle velvet. Frank and tidy right from the start, it features cold stony notes, with a slightly salty and iodized palate. There is a sustained presence of wood throughout, making this wine ideal for longer ageing. The texture is opulent, consistent and taut, all at once.
This is a superb fresh wine, with great potential over time.
