Jean-Paul Thevenet Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2018

$33.99

Jean-Paul Thevenet is not only the third generation to work his families farm in Morgon but also a member of Kermit Lynch's gang of four. He has spent the last 40 years tailoring his work in the vineyard and the winery to accomplish the task of making the very best Morgon he can. He makes only one wine, in an average year producing 2000 cases from 5 hectares of vines that are 45 to 110 years old. Like the other members of the gang, he works naturally in the vineyard employing biodynamic methods and utilizes only native yeast in the winery.andnbsp; His 2018 Morgon is one of the best wines of the vintage with an explosive nose redolent of spiced red berry fruit, violets, and herbs. The palate is lifted and driven more by acidity and minerality than tannin with a long finish.andnbsp; In time this is sure to unfurl into a regal bottle of Beaujolais.

Night 1: Nose is carbonic leaning at first with purple raspberry and grape candy but unfolds to cranberry, pomegranate and violets with some mineral, smokey accents. Palate is clean and medium weight, with some sweet baking spices on the finish. There’s a really pretty breezy, weightless quality to this as it airs. Night 2: Runaway mousiness. The fault seems increasingly prevalent in natural wines many of which cost upwards of $30/bottle. Frustrating. Finish this in one sitting unless you’re not sensitive to mouse taint.

Few Americans understand the depth of Beaujolais due to the market flood by the big producers during the Beaujolais Nouveaux annual festival. The Gamay grape has so much more to offer and Master Sommelier, George Miliotis, shared this great example with me. Dark overripe strawberry and stone minerality. Charcuterie never tasted so good!
