Les Vins Thévenet (Domaine de Bongran), Mâcon

Categories: ,

Jean Thévenet is an icon in the French wine world. Along with vignerons like Marcel Lapierre and Pierre Overnoy, Thévenet was among the progenitors of the winemaking philosophies that we now call natural wine and organic viticulture. Decades before it was fashionable and profitable, Thévenet abandoned conventional, chemical agriculture, simultaneously revitalizing both land of his great Domaine de Bongran and the wines it produced. Today, Jean’s son Gaulthier runs the domaine working in the same manner as his father, while keeping his mind open to new ideas and methods, and the Thévenet wines continue to be utterly singular.
