Charly Thevenet Regnie 'Grain & Granit' 2011

Founded in 2006, Charly Thevenet, son of infamous ‘Gang of Four’ member, Jean-Paul, creates his wines with the same hands-off mentality as his father, crafting wines from 80 year old vines in Régnié. ‘Grain & Granit’ is whole cluster fermented and vinified in cement; the 2011 is developing gorgeously, showing notes of red fruit, herbs, wet earth, and stones. Serve alongside the 2016 for a seriously interesting vertical!

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
