Thevenet et Fils Macon Pierreclos Rouge, 2020, 750ml
Thevenet & Fils is another fantastic family run producer from the Macon-Pierreclos Appellation in Burgundy. Brothers Benjamin, Jonathan, and Aurélien Thevenet run the estate with their mother Helene. The Thevenet’s are dedicated to producing top quality wine with great typicity, meaning they want the grape varietal above all to dictate the flavor and aroma of their wines. This bottling of Macon Rouge is made from 100% Gamay from a 40 years old parcel located near the Thevenet home in Pierreclos. Undergoing a short week-long fermentation in concrete tanks, this fresh and lively gamay is aged for 6 to 8 months before being bottled. Just a stone’s throw from Beaujolais, this wine has a similar but perhaps more relaxed disposition than its more well-known neighbor. Fruity, open, and lively, this is a red that is meant to be immediately enjoyed.
