Domaine Jean- Paul & Charly Thevenet, Regnie Grain et Granit 2020
An expressive and fresh wine with notes of acid red fruit, redcurrant and wild strawberry, accompanied by a mineral register.
A 4 ha plot of Gamay on granite soil. The grapes are cold vatted at 10°C, carbonic maceration for 3 weeks, non-interventionist vinification (or without pumping over and punching down). Time does its work; the only action is the bi-weekly analysis which is used to follow the evolution of the wine. Ageing of 1 year 50% concrete vat and 50% Burgundian barrel of 3 wines.
The Thevenet family has lived in Villie-Morgon, in the heart of the Beaujolais wine region, for the last four generations. Jean-Paul Thevenet 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 cultive old vines, apply organic farming practices, avoid the use of sulphur, let natural ferments do their magic and help the terroir expressing itself through minimal intervention. In 2007, Charly Thevenet, the latest descendant, has been producing a wine from the Regnie appellation under the name Grain et Granit. Using the same approach as his father, who continues to advocate "natural" wines, the Regnie vineyards are cultivated using organic practices with no fertilisers or pesticides
