Thevenet & Fils Bussieres Les Clos Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013, is one of those wines with a lovely family story. This red Burgundy is produced by three brothers, Benjamin, Jonathan and Aurélien Thevenet, who pride themselves in producing wines in the style of their ancestors, but namely in tribute to their father who died in 2008.

Thevenet & Fils Bussieres Les Clos Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013 is 100% Pinot Noir, and is a Thevenet estate wine.

With my two brothers, we decided to take over the family estate in 2008 in order to give tribute to our father Jean-Claude Thévenet. Our estate is located near the village of Pierreclos, between Mâcon and Cluny in Southern Burgundy. Everyone in the family is playing a distinctive and complementary role…

On colour, the Thevenet & Fils Bussieres Les Clos Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013 holds a light ruby hue. On the nose, herb, floral hits and metal are present. On the palate, you’ll find this wine to be quite refreshing. You’ll grasp a bevy of red berries, a metallic touch, and light cocoa bean.

This wine retails at the LCBO for $18.25
