Notes from the Importer: Maison MC Thiriet is a micro-négoce based out of Chateau de Comblanchien, in the Côte-d'Or.
After years of experience in both the production and sales side, Canadian-born winemaker Matt Chittick and Burgundian Camille Thiriet, have thrown caution and better judgement to the wind in order to realize a long term dream of producing Burgundy under their own label. Camille and Matt met while working for Nicolas Potel at the Domaine de Bellene. Matt was the winemaker from 2011 to 2014 and Camille was the head of sales.
Maison Roche de Bellene produces wine from over 75 different appellations so the experience gave Matt and Camille access to a great deal of reputable growers across the Cote D’or. This insight and network of relationships allows them to source only the best fruit for their own label from great growers who they know and admire.
