Le Petit Courselle 'Les Copines'

This wine is a Sauvignon, Sémillon blend with Chardonnay which is not only unheard of in Bordeaux but is banned by the AOC — a wonderfully uncomplicated wine. Once harvested, the grapes ferment in temperature-controlled tanks before bottling. It is perfect for aperitifs—zesty and zippy with some weight and tropical fruit brought on by the Chardonnay. Le Petit Courselle Blanc also complements shellfish and oysters in particular. Sushi is a fantastic match, as is a firmer bloomy rinded cheese (like Saint-Nectaire) and goats cheese.

Organic methods and Terra Vitis certification.

Marie and Sylvie Courselle

Sylvie and Marie Courselle are sisters and oenologists from Bordeaux. Together, they run Château Thieuley, their family estate near La Sauve in Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux. Château Thieuley was bought by their grandfather in 1950, but it was their father, Francis Courselle, who made the estate famous. He was a renowned expert in white wines and an oenological educator at Bordeaux University. To spite this recognition, Francis Courselle truly earned Château Thieuley's reputation by making outstanding white wines that rival the great white wines of Burgundy.

Marie and Sylvie Courselle were raised in vineyards and wineries, steeped in the practice and culture of winemaking. It is here where they inherited their father's passion for wine and created Le Petit Courselle.

"Le Petit Courselle is the brother we never had when we were young so, instead, we brought him to life in our imagination to share our adventures, our silliness and our magical childhood moments. The two wines "Les Copains" and "Les Copines" (Friends!) reflect who we are - they're happy wines, full of generosity for bringing people together and sharing."
Marie & Sylvie Courselle

Chateau Thieuley

The name « Thieule » comes from the ancient French word ‘tioule’, a tile factory that used the local clay, the key component of the great Bordeaux vineyards. Our soils are a mix of clay and gravel. In Clos Sainte Anne, the quality of the terroir lies in t
