2015 Sélection EJ Thévenet Domaine de la Bon Gran
Tropical fruits on the nose, banana and marzipan, burnt butter, condensed milk. Concentrated and bold style, creamy yet back by bright acid on the palate. Yellow plum, quince, ripe citrus, with hints of butter, toffee, fior di latte ice cream. Complete, rich and yet beautifully balanced. Wow i love these wines!! Drinking range: 2020 - 2026 L&S (Jun 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The vines surround the south and west sides of Quintaine, the soils which make the richest wines of the appellation. Clear and bright colour with a light oxidation apparent on the nose, but not in the mouth, gracious white fruit all the way through, and far from heavy at the finish.

Domaine de la Bon Gran
The Thévenets' original and flagship domaine, in which Jean Thévenet's son Gautier is now formly in charge, still making 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 Mâconnais.
The main cuvée we ship is his top 'dry' cuvée, called 'Sélection EJ Thévenet', which, after a nervous few years in which wines with over 2g of residual sugar were not admitted into the appellation, is now allowed to be called Viré-Clessé. Gautier 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.
