Jean Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2019Regular price $44.99
You know the gang by now–Lapierre, Foillard, and Breton. These guys banded up in their twenties to (help) change the world of French wine, natural wine, and Beaujolais forever. But the name Thévenet, the fourth gang of Four member, rarely gets mentioned. That's partially because Jean-Paul makes far less wine than the others. The single wine he makes, perhaps the most elegant and long-lived expression of Morgon I've ever tasted is a true study on that lovely village. It is high-toned, zesty, and lightly funk in its youth, and can age like great Burgundy–if, unlike me, you have the patience to wait. I've gone through chilled bottle after chilled bottle this summer. If you love Beaujolais and haven't yet experienced Thévenet's rendition, now's the time to do it!
Guy Breton Morgon 2019Regular price $44.99
Guy’s friends may call him “Petit Max”, but in the world of wine, he is quite the contrary. Breton is a major force in restoring the honor of Gamay in Beaujolais. This Morgon is his principle offering from 80-year-old vines, contributing a deeper complexity and structure to lush red fruits.
Thivin Cote de Brouilly 2019Regular price $32.99
The Geoffray family at the helm of Château Thivin craft some of the most delicious and drinkable, yet also pensive and complex Gamays in the Beaujolais. From the stupendous 2018 vintage, their Côte de Brouilly is laced with crunchy raspberry fruit and a streak of minerality. Drink cool–with just about anything.
