Thevenet Père et Fils, Mâcon

Categories: ,

Jean-Claude Thevenet took over responsibility for this family domaine in 1971 when their holdings were a mere three hectares. The domaine has been expanded to thirty hectares, with vineyards centered on their village of Pierreclos at the heart of the Mâconnais. In addition to working their own vineyards, the Thevenet family, for three generations, has also conducted a successful nursery business producing fine quality grape vines for many family-owned domaines in Burgundy and also in the Champagne district. The vineyard holdings now extend throughout Pierreclos and into the neighboring villages of Serrieres, Prissé, Bussieres and Milly-Lamartine. Chardonnay is the dominant grape and Gamay and Pinot Noir produce the red wines of the estate.
