Jean-Paul Thévenet is another name in Beaujolais’ famous “Gang of Four” not to be missed. Nestled in the small village of Villié- Morgon in the wine producing region of Beaujolais, Jean-Paul Thévenet is leading his family’s winery in the third generation. His son Charly joined him in 2008 and they’ve been converting the 5 ha Domaine - all in the Morgon Grand Cru- according to organic and biodynamic principles ever since.
Candied cherry, raspberry, damp earth, spice and roses. Ripe fruit with a slightly sharp edge, stony and chalky, volume of flavour and fleshy, yet stylish and savoury. Finish is layered with spice and flowers. My word, such personality and ease of drinking here, that it’s hard to say no to another glass. Tasted: Oct 19; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $55; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2019-2028+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
