Winery Details

    Growing up as the son of Beaujolais’ famous Jean-Paul Thévenet, a member of the notorious “Gang of Four”, Charly learnt the trade at a very young age. Gaining extensive experience helping his father, and working in Marcel Lapierre’s winery, he owns a parcel of eighty-year-old vines in Régnié. He prefers whole-bunch ferments of ripe, heavily sorted fruit at a low temperatures, with no filtration. Charly farms his 3ha vineyard biodynamically, and produces less than 600 cases. Read More

Press Review

    Jean-Paul et Charly Thévenet Grain & Granit Régnié 2021
    Red fruits, spice, some perfume and gentle earthiness. It’s fine-boned with subtle stony tannin, a little bit juicy, but also nicely contained, and comes over almost like a Pinot Noir, and the finish is long with spiced cherry and strawberry in the aftertaste. Lovely wine.

    Jean-Paul et Charly Thévenet Grain & Granit Régnié 2021
    After an internship with the Lapierres just up the street, a teenaged Charly Thévenet convinced his father, Jean Paul, to abandon herbicides and start plowing his vineyards. More than twenty years later, Charly continues to carry the family domaine forward, honing farming and winemaking to produce cru Beaujolais that is purer and more delicious with each passing vintage. His Régnié has always had an intensity and concentration from ninety-year-old vines planted directly into granite bedrock, but in 2021 it is also lithe, juicy, and dangerously thirst-quenching.A change to all-tank aging, lower sulfur, plus a Beaujolais vintage for the ages has resulted in one of his finest releases to date."
