In 2007, Château Thieuley decided to plant Syrah and Chardonnay (two varieties forbidden to produce Bordeaux AOC). And just next to them, Francis Courselle, a great fan of truffles, grew more than one hundred truffle trees on a soil said to be adapted to them. Hence, the name Les Truffières. This characteristic top-class Chardonnay is a yellow-bright colour showing good minerality with flavours of almonds and honey. A very round mouth with a lot of richness and good persistence.

Marie and Sylvie Courselle

Sylvie and Marie Courselle are sisters and oenologists from Bordeaux. Together, they run Château Thieuley, their family estate near LaSauve in Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux. Château Thieuley was bought by theirgrandfather 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. Despite this recognition, Francis Courselle truly earned Chateau Thieuley's reputation by making outstanding white wines that rival the great white wines of Burgundy. Marie and Sylvie Courselle were raised invineyards and wineries, steeped in the practice and culture of winemaking. It is here that they inherited their father's passion for wine and created Le Petit Courselle.
