Domaine Thenard Givry Premier Cru Cellar Aux Moines 2012 750ML      
Sku: 49781

The Thenard family has owned land in Givry since 1760. For the past several decades their estate, Domaine Thenard, has sold most of its production to the negociant Maison Roland Remoissenet. Wine had always been bottled under the Thenard label for private customers such as Charles de Gaulle and the Pope, but Remoissenet requested that the estate wines not be sold to the U.S. market. In 2005, Remoissenet was sold to a group of North American investors and the Thenard estate decided to begin bottling more wine under the domaine label.

Despite being virtually unknown in the U.S., Domaine Thenard has been famous in Burgundy for over a century. Baron Paul Thenard founded the estate in 1842 and thirty years later he completed a transaction that would put it on the map. In 1872, the Baron acquried two large parcels in Le Montrachet, totaling 1.86 hectares. Only the Marques de Laguiche, with their single parcel of 2.06 hectares, own more. In comparison, the third largest owner of Montrachet is Bouchard Pere et Fils with 0.89 hectares. In the 20th century, the grand cru vineyards Clos du Roi in Corton and Les Grands Echezeaux in Flagey were added to the portfolio. These vineyard acquisitions made Thenard one of the most important estates in Burgundy, yet the heart of the domaine remained in the humble village of Givry.

Tasting notes
This is a sensual and complex wine with a fleshy texture and aroma of fruits and dried flowers. It is a chardonnay full of the fragrance of southern Bourgogne.

Rating
A premier cru red Burgundy at this price and with this quality is truly tough to come by. You must search the outskirts to find this sort of thing. Pure, ripe, vibrant and full of minerals, juicy fruit and lively acidity. Built for the cellar, but has the elegance and balance to enjoy now as well. Refined. Wine Buyer, 92 Points
