This wine is living proof that Burgundy can and should still be thought of as a source of excellent value for Pinot Noir. Make no mistake, these values are harder to come by than before, but this wine is a strong affirmation that they are still out there. The Thevenet family are working around 30 hectares in the Macconais, where they make Pinot Noir, Gamay and Chardonnay. The vines for this wine come from a single vineyard andquot;Les Closandquot; planted on clay soils at 350 feetandnbsp;in elevation and exposed south. The wine is broad, juicy and friendly, with some polite earthiness that lets you know youand#39;re in Burgundy. As compelling a Pinot Noir as weand#39;ve been able to find at the shop for under $20, and we taste countless examples.
