2019 Maison Camille Thiriet Volnay "Les Grands Champs"
ORIGIN: Burgundy, France
GRAPE: Pinot Noir
Special Notes: Organic
Maison MC Thiriet is a micro-négoce based out of Chateau de Comblanchien, in the Côte-d'Or. One of Cote d'Or’s newest up-and-coming micro-négoces and is based out of Château de Comblanchien. After years of experience in both the production and sales side, Canadian-born winemaker Matt Chittick and Burgundian Camille Thiriet, have thrown caution and better judgement to the wind in order to realize a long term dream of producing Burgundy under their own label. Camille and Matt met while working for Nicolas Potel at the Domaine de Bellene. Matt was the winemaker from 2011 to 2014 and Camille was the head of sales. Maison Roche de Bellene produces wine from over 75 different appellations so the experience gave Matt and Camille access to a great deal of reputable growers across the Cote D’or. This insight and network of relationships allows them to source only the best fruit for their own label from great growers who they know and admire. The duo is crafting some of Burgundy’s most exciting and thought-provoking wines at highly accessible prices. 2018 is the inaugural vintage of ‘Les Grands Champs’ for MC Thiriet.
Tasting Notes: The wine is lively and energetic, marked by dark fruit flavors, well-integrated tannins, and bright acidity.
Food Recommendation: White meat, chicken, grilled pork.
