Domaine Thenard

Domaine Thenard

The Baron Thénard domain is an institution in the Burgundy wine landscape, with the Thénard family owning vineyards since 1760, boasting the prestige of being one of the main owners of the mythical Grand Cru Montrachet with an area of 1.84 ha. Paul, the second Baron Thénard, purchased the vineyard in 1873, and the operation has been kept intact by the family since then.

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

Jean-Baptiste Bordeaux-Montrieux, a descendant of the Thénard family, has been managing the domain since the 1980s. The production methods have remained traditional in the noblest sense of the term, with all the vintages 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 remarkably well.
