Winery Details

    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 expressing itself through minimal intervention. Following these principals, each of them has ever since proven that Beaujolais is more than just 'Nouveau' and can indeed produce meaningful, complex and wonderful wines. Read More

Press Review

    Jean-Paul Thévenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2017

    An ethereally crafted, old-vine Morgon that has a very light, perfumed layer of red flowers and strawberries on the nose and a smooth, succulent and juicy palate. Lacy, fine tannins. Fresh and suave. Drink or hold.

    Jean-Paul Thévenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2017

    The 2017 Morgon Vieilles Vignes is superb, wafting from the glass with notes of red cherries, cassis, candied peel and raw cocoa. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with juicy acids, a deep core of fruit and refined tannins. Thévenet routinely produces one of the most elegant, classy expressions of Morgon, and the 2017 vintage is no exception. In ideal conditions, this will develop in bottle for a decade or more.
