Jean-Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2019 - Beaujolais
Bottle size: 750ml
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 according to organic and biodynamic principles ever since. Charly is also making wines under his own label from the neighbouring Grand Cru Régnié.
Interesting to taste this VV alongside the ‘Tradition’. Different colour (browner), clarity (less), and character. Not better, or worse, just different.
Cloudy, but fine. Sour cherry, strawberry and spice, a little wet clay and slightly lifted edginess, dried flowers and chamomile. Pulpy fruit power, so much presence on the palate, silty and silky in tannin, wild but beautiful, and a finish that runs very long and bright. Unfettered and charismatic.

Jean-Paul Thévenet is certainly a name in everyone's ear ever since Kermit Lynch dubbed him, together with Marcel Lapierre, Guy Breton and Jean Foillard, as Beaujolais' famous "Gang of Four" in the '80s. The essence of their philosophy: take a step back, appreciate and cultivate old vines, apply organic farming practices, avoid the use of sulphur, let natural ferments do their magic and help the terroir express itself through minimal intervention. Following these principals, each of them has proven that Beaujolais is more than just 'Nouveau' and can indeed produce meaningful, complex and wonderful wines.
