Domaine Pierre Thibert may be a young estate by Burgundian standards, but it has seen constant growth and modernisation since its inception. While volumes are small, the wines are excellent: intense, beautifully balanced, accessible, and with wonderful purity of fruit.
The eponymous Pierre Thibert moved his estate to its current home in Corgoloin in 1995. Since then, it has steadily grown, and new parcels recently acquired in Beaune brought its total land to five hectares.
Pierre’s son Arthur took over the running of the domaine in 2017, having worked alongside his father for five years. Arthur is committed to the gradual modernisation of his winery; since his takeover, a new cuverie has been built and the vinification and elevage has been adapted to each wine and vintage. For Arthur, it is all about balance; every year, he adapts his winemaking methods to the grapes that come into the winery. Without fail, though, the wines are all bottled without fining or filtration.
Arthur’s stripped-back approach applies to his vineyards, too. He employs farming methods that are organic without certification, which have worked to push quality levels upwards.
