Professional Wine Reviews for Jean Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2014

Rated 93 by Decanter
Dark magenta. A heady, impressively complex bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, potpourri and spicecake, and a smoky mineral element adds vivacity. Stains the palate with sappy black raspberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors and picks up an exotic blood orange nuance with air, which adds a refreshingly bitter edge. Sweeter on the incisive finish, which hangs on with outstanding fruit-driven tenacity. (Vinous)

Additional Information on Jean Paul Thevenet Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2014

Winery: Jean Paul Thevenet

Region: Burgundy

In the beautiful French wine region of Burgundy, there is archaeological evidence to suggest that there has been viticultural activity going on for at least two thousand years. To add to this, there are early written records praising the exceptional wines produced in this region dating back to the 6th century, making Burgundy one of the oldest established and still operational wine regions in the world. The region is most commonly associated with fine red wines, with Pinot Noir being the primary grape varietal grown on its rolling hillsides and gently sloping valleys. However, Chardonnay grapes are also produced in abundance for the production of their fine white wines, with both varietals benefiting greatly from the region's warm, hot summers and the superb soils which make up the terroir.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
