Charly is the son of famous Morgon producer Jean-Paul Thévenet and was therefore exposed to a more natural viticulture from a young age. Destined to be a vigneron he spent time working at various estates, including for Marcel Lapierre, until he established himself in Régnié in 2007. Here he looks after old vines grown on decomposed granite and schist soil - know locally as "roche pourrie" - rotten rocks also high in iron oxide. This is a serious, ferrous and meaty Morgon with a dense core of sweet Brambly fruit. Serious wine.
