Jean-Paul Thevenet is one of the original 'Gang of Four', alongside other Beaujolais masters Guy Breton, Jean Foillard and Marcel Lapierre, all students of Chauvet, but for some reason isn't as well known as the others.
With his son on board for a little over 10 years now these wines are bright energetic and delicious as ever.
A brightness to the juice with a heady fragrant mix of cherries, raspberries, violets and a hint of clove. Vibrant acidity frame up a modest core of red fruits, turned earth and refined tannins.
Having Thevenet in your cellar is a little like a secret handshake for those in the know.
