Domaine Thenard

Domaine Thenard

The Baron Thénard estate is an institution of the Burgundian wine landscape, the Thénard family owning vines since 1760, with the prestige of being one of the main owners of the mythical Grand Cru Montrachet with a surface of 1.84 ha. Paul, second Baron Thénard bought the vineyard in 1873 and the estate has been maintained intact by the family ever since.

The century-old winery is located in Givry, in the Côte Chalonnaise, where the family owns most of its vines, namely 18 ha spread over the 1st growth Clos du Cellier aux Moines, Clos Saint Pierre and Bois Chevaux. Beyond Montrachet, the estate also has beautiful vines in Côte d'Or, including Chassagne 1er cru Clos Saint Jean, Pernand 1er cru Iles des Vergelesses, Grand Cru Clos du Roi...

Jean-Baptiste Bordeaux-Montrieux, descendant of the Thénard family, has been managing the estate since the 80s. The production methods have remained traditional in the noble sense of the term, all the cuvées being aged in oak barrels. The wines deliver a superb expression of the quintessence of Burgundy on its mythical grape varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The entire range ages admirably.
