Domaine Huber-Verdereau Borgogne ChardonnayThiébaults wines are certainly a ‘must-have’ chez Les Beaumonts and a personal favourite is the Bourgogne Chardonnay which is most likely to be amongst the chosen wines to be sampled.

Domaine Huber-Verdereau VolnayHistory: Domaine Huber-Verdereau was founded by Thiébault Huber in 1994, but originates from the 19th century when family Verdereau began to grow wine on the estate in Volnay. Thiébault runs 6.5 hectares of vines in three parishes: Volnay, Pommard, and Meursault. Convinced that the true wealth and flavour of Burgundy comes from the soil, he controls yields and makes his wines in the traditional manner, though not hesitating to use modern techniques such as thermoregulation and pre-fermentation maceration when necessary. The Domaine has worked organically since 2001 and applied biodynamic principles in 2005.
