Description

Anthony Thévenet works and lives among his vines and animals. His life is defined by his quest to preserve the history of the region through a steadfast devotion to his vines. The vineyards are all farmed organically with very little mechanization and no pesticides. All grapes are harvested by hand and sorting is done directly in the vineyard.

Anthony Thévenet is a member of the new generation of vigneron defending the purity and legacy in Cru Beaujolais. In 2010, Thévenet inherited his grandfather’s vineyard in Villié-Morgon. In 2014, he inherited a parcel in Côte du Py Morgon. This vineyard is in the heart of Beaujolais and widely considered one of the truly magical sites in all of Beaujolais. The wines ferment in a mix of old wood and concrete tank, and—according to the vintage— the fruit goes through 10 to 25 days of carbonic maceration. They are always are made without correction, ferment with indigenous yeasts and without pump-overs, and are bottled unfined and unfiltered. The vines for this wine were planted in 1935.
