ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Thévenet & Fils Bussieres Le Clos Bourgogne Rouge

Thévenet & Fils Bussieres Le Clos Bourgogne Rouge is a textbook example of earthy, floral-laced Pinot Noir from the famed Burgundy region. A rush of black and red fruit is up front, including spiced cherries, Damson plum, and wild blackberries, and that is followed by a nice dollop of dried flowers, espresso, wet earth, and “sauvage” minerals. The Pinot Noir for this wine is found in the village of Bussières and is sourced from the lieu-dit single vineyard Les Clos. The vines are south-facing at 350 feet above sea level on gently sloping hills principally composed of clay. The fruit tends to ripen early due to its excellent exposure. Pigeage and remontage are practiced during fermentation.

About Domaine Thévenet & Fils

Jean-Claude Thevenet took control of the family domaine in 1971 from his father Raymond; at this time their holdings were a mere three hectares. Over the decades, Jean-Claude built the domaine to its current size of thirty hectares with vineyards centered on their village of Pierreclos at the heart of the Maconnais. Wines of purity, honesty, and fine value were the objective, and indeed, the wines consistently performed at a high level.

Jean-Claude’s three sons (Benjamin, Jonathan, and Aurélien) grew up dedicated to the family domaine. Jean-Claude passed away in 2008 at the too-young age of 54; but, his three talented and dedicated progeny, all functioning under the rigorous supervision of their mother Helene, have continued the domaine. The vineyard holdings now extend throughout Pierreclos and into the neighboring villages of Serrieres, Prissé, Bussieres, and Milly-Lamartine.

In addition to working their vineyards, the Thevenet family, for three generations, also conducted a successful nursery business producing fine quality grape vines for many family-owned domaines in Burgundy and the Champagne district.
