Mushroom, creamed butter, quince and peach. Palate is rich with bright acid, ripe stone fruit, grip and balance, full flavoured with truffle and mushroom complexity. L&S (Nov 2016)

A superb nose of honeycomb, buttered apples and field mushroom. Textural, intense; dimension and power with cool acids. Several years away from revealing all its potential. Drinking range: 2017 - 2030 Rating: 93 William Kelley, Decanter (Jun 2017)

Domaine de la Bon Gran

Jean Thévenet's original and flagship domaine, in which he makes wines which are rich and ripe and are given no oak at all, and yet which still manage to be the most complex and satisfying wines of the Maconnais.

The main cuvée we ship is his top 'dry' cuvée, called 'Sélection EJ Thévenet', which is now called Viré-Clessé. He also makes tiny quantities of the highly sought-after Cuvée Levroutée, a late-harvest just touched by botrytis with the constitution and depth of a Montrachet, and infinitesimal amounts of his Cuvée Botrytis, a fully sweet Sélection des Grains Nobles style. Organic production.
