Thierry is quite noticeable with his walrus mustache, a bad limp from a terrible auto accident, a beautiful wife at his side, and a sparkle in his eye. His wines are some of the most graceful and elegant of the Côte de Beaune. His parcels in Pommard, Beaune Clos des Mouches, and several Pommard Premier Crus yield wines that are quite delicate for the appellations. Thierry inherited small parcels of wonderful vineyards planted since 1936. Bottling just 9000 cases each vintage, this quality artisan producer owns a total of five hectares across nine different vineyards which he farms biologically.
