2019 Jean-Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes

$34.99
2019 Jean-Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes
We tasted the Morgon VV yesterday and were very impressed by its classic and elegant style. 2019 is another excellent vintage for the region, and those that were able to deal with the erratic weather patterns came out on top with superb wines. This is a perfect example of that work with lovely concentration and depth from two parcels of some of the oldest vines in Beaujolais; one is 45 years old, the other is pre-WWI, and are over 110 years old. The vines are biodynamically grown, hand-harvested and sorted, fermented with natural yeasts, and see the traditional whole cluster fermentation. Thevenet is one of the reasons we have high-quality Beaujolais producers and is an inspiration to abandoning commercialized production, which has dominated the appellation for so long. A wine that has plenty of appeal out of the gate but is one of the Beaujolais that can spend a little time aging. 2019 is another excellent effort from this Beaujolais great that fans of the region are sure to enjoy and is a great cellar saver for the Burgundy drinker.
