Thevenet Le Clos Bourgogne Rouge ’18

Winemaker Notes

The pinot noir for this wine is found in the village of Bussieres and is sourced from the lieu-dit « Les Clos ». The vines are south-facing at 350 feet above sea level on gently sloping hills that are principally composed of clay. The fruit tends to ripen early due to its excellent exposure. Pigeage and remontage are practiced during fermentation. This wine is marked by notes of black, ripe berries, often a touch “sauvage”.

About the Winery

By 1982 Jean-Claude Thevenet had taken responsibility for this family domaine from his father, Raymond, when their holdings were a mere three (3) hectares, Jean-Claude was in the process of building the domaine to its current size of thirty (30) hectares with vineyards centered on their village of Pierreclos at the heart of the Maconnais. 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.
Jean-Claude and his wife, Helene, and now his three sons (Benjamin, Jonathan and Aurélien), have performed at a remarkable, and consistently high, level producing wines of honesty, purity and fine value. Sadly, Jean-Claude passed away in 2008 at the too-young age of 54; but, we are graced by the presence of his three talented and dedicated progeny, all functioning under the rigorous supervision of their mother, Helene.

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.  Thevenet only uses synthetic treatments when absolutely necessary and consider their production, la lutte raisonnée. La lutte raisonnée means ‘the reasoned struggle’. Growers who practice this kind of viticulture claim to use chemicals less often and less aggressively than conventional growers.
