Domaine de la Bongran 2011 Cuvée E.J Thevenet

Domaine de la Bongran 2011 2011 Cuvée E.J Thevenet Viré - Clessé Quintaine 100% Chardonnay Wine Advocate: 92 Points The 2011 Viré-Clessé Quintaine Cuvée E.J. Thevenet comes from vines on Oxfordian limestone soils and is the one to go for if you like to keep your Mâconnais dry and without residual sugar. It has an absolutely divine bouquet that can barely contain its heady perfume of orange blossom, peppermint and wild fennel, just a smear of dried honey on top and maybe even a hint of truffle. This is so nuanced but, at the same time, very complex. The palate is well balanced with lemongrass and orange rind, marmalade surfacing midway through the experience. The acidity is very well judged and there is a very harmonious, almost Condrieu-like finish that has swagger and verve. Family estate transmitted across generations. The 37 acres of vines are located in the Maconnais region on white marls. At this estate all the work is done manually in order to promote the best potential of the Chardonnay. Wines of Jean Thevenet have the reputation of true burgundian character.
