A great choice for Thanksgiving!

Old Vine Morgon from a Premier Producer!
2015 John-Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes...$25.99
Thevenet is a 3rd Generation vigneron who was a significant voice in "natural wine" movement in Beaujolais, fighting against the innocuous mass-produced wines of the 1980's. He produces only 2,000 cases of this juicy red. We are very excited to have grabbed 15 cases of the 2015 Morgon Vieilles Vignes. This wine is made from fruit grown in two different parcels, one planted in the late 1960s and the other over 110 years ago (before World War I). It has a lovely floral bouquet, with ample raspberry and cherry flavors, baking spice, and taut acidity. No score yet, but the 2014 scored 94 Galloni and 2015 is an amazing vintage. It sold out incredibly fast last year, so don't wait for the score, just get it now!

Only 2,000 cases produced
