Domaine De La Bongran

Domaine De La Bongran

Based in Quintaine, a hamlet located between Viré and Clessé, Domaine de la Bongran stands out in the wine landscape of the Mâconnais, with the Thévenet family shedding light on residual sugar wines (Chardonnay) in Burgundy. Jean Thévenet has been at the helm of the Domaine since 1972, and his son Gautier joined him in 1996.

Certified organic since 2012, father and son strive to harvest Chardonnay grapes at optimal ripeness, in order to produce rich, full-bodied wines with incredible aromatic concentration. While preserving balance and acidity, the white marl soil of the Domaine's vineyards maintains a high level of acidity even at full maturity. Another unique aspect is that the wines are aged for a long period (at least 2 years) in stainless steel tanks, without any wood influence. The dry cuvée of Viré-Clessé E.J Thévenet retains between 2g and 4g of residual sugar, a wine of very high quality.

The Domaine also produces two cuvées only in the best vintages. The cuvée Levroutée is a semi-sweet wine with 18g/L of residual sugar, while the cuvée Botrytis is a very grand sweet wine produced only in a handful of vintages. These wines age beautifully and delight everyone, especially during dessert!
