Domaine Thevenet, En Voiture Simone 2021, Aop Régnie

En Voiture Simone is a pure Beaujolais Gamay, made with bio-dynamic practices and manual harvest with very severe sorting of the grapes, only the best are allowed to be used. It is a must for Beaujolais fans as the family Thévenet was part of the revolution that took place in Beaujolais, a few very prominent winemakers decided to go organic a long time before it became fashionable and Thévenet was part of it. This wine has the typical structure of Gamay with fresh fruit when it is young and will become more complex with time and will reveal flavours of spices and flowers. It is best consumed slightly chilled, around 15 degrees and would definitely have the qualification as a “vin de copain”, a wine to drink with friends.

Domaine Jean-Paul et Charly Thevenet

Domaine Jean-Paul et Charly Thevenet

Charly Thévenet, a rising star in Beaujolais who, following in the footsteps of his father, Jean-Paul, is seamlessly transitioning into the role of winemaker extraordinaire. In 2007, Charly embarked on his winemaking journey in the hidden gem of Beaujolais, Régnié, carving his path in this illustrious wine region.

Born into a legacy of innovation, Charly's father, Jean-Paul, stands as one of the pioneers of organic and nature winemakers. Back in 1985, he, along with three others, formed the legendary "Fabulous 4 of Beaujolais," championing a commitment to organic practices that eschew chemical fertilisers and pesticides.

In the heart of this winemaking haven, some of the vines under Charly's care have gracefully stood the test of time, with roots delving over 70 years into the soil to extract minerals from the bedrock, contributing to the creation of a structurally refined wine.

At the hands of Charly, Gamay grapes are meticulously harvested at full ripeness, and the winemaking process unfolds through carbonic fermentation. The weight of the grapes initiates a gentle crush, and their fermentation commences naturally with the indigenous yeast present on the grape skins. A touch of finesse is added with a slight filtration before the wines find their way into bottles.

The result? Wines that exude delightful fruity characteristics, evolving with age to reveal nuanced notes of spice and flowers. Charly Thévenet's approach is a testament to the harmonious blend of tradition, innovation, and a deep-rooted commitment to crafting wines that capture the essence of Beaujolais. Cheers to Charly, a vintner/winemaker who continues to shape the future while honouring the rich legacy of his winemaking roots.
