Chenas Anthony Thevenet, organic wine, natural wine, 100% Gamay, Carbonic maceration, lush and soft, delicious. Thevenet is a student of the greats of the region of Morgon, Descombes and Foillard. His wines are at a similar level and remind us how much we just adore the noble Gamay grape! Freshness and flavour is the thing, never wines which cloy and weight heavy on the palat. Rich red fruits, notes of pepper and spice, soft texture, amazing acidity, class red wine which will age to up to 8-10 years we would say.
