The son of “Gang of Four” Morgon producer Jean-Paul Thévenet, Charly had early exposure to the world of organic farming and natural winemaking. Passionate about the family business, he struck out on his own as soon as the opportunity presented itself, purchasing a parcel of eighty-year-old vines in the neighboring cru of Régnié. Today, he works side by side with his father, so while they sell their Morgon and Régnié under separate labels, they collaborate in the production of both wines. As with the Morgon, Charly’s Régnié grapes are harvested when fully ripe, by hand, then vinified via whole-cluster fermentation, in typical Beaujolais fashion. The wine is aged in neutral Burgundian barrels before bottling without fining or filtration. The 2015 vintage gives us a rich, bold, and spicy Régnié, saturated with luscious fruit and earthy funk. Serve it with grilled sausages, or let it sit in your cellar for a few years before uncorking. –Anthony Lynch
