Once known only to a dedicated group of Burgundy devotees due to their reputation selling much of the production to noted perfectionists Dominique Laurent and Lalou Bize-Leroy, Domaine Thierry Glantenay now enjoys no such anonymity. Formally trained as an engineer, Thierry brings those methodical and exacting skills to his winemaking, crafting ethereal Volnay and powerful Pommard that display fantastic transparency of each specific terroir. Blessed with small parcels in the best vineyards of Volnay and Pommard, Thierry has set about a gradual process of refining and perfecting how his vines are managed, and guiding the wines through vinification with a delicate touch.

Other Reviews....
Aromas of raspberries and cherries mingled with hints of forest floor and raw cocoa introduce the 2020 Pommard Les Riottes, a medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated wine that concludes with a long, mineral finish. The vines in this site are suffering, yielding only a single barrel this year.
