Domaine Jean-Paul Thevenet Vielles Vignes Morgon 2018 – France
Domaine Jean-Paul Thevenet Vielles Vignes Morgon 2018
This Domaine Jean-Paul Thevenet Vielles Vignes Morgon 2018 is made from pure red fruits, has a refreshing acidity, a medium- bodied wine with an earthly complexity. It also has a deep meaty flavour with hints of animal aromas brought about by the vine age.
It is ideal to pair with meats such as veal, beef and game meats or even by itself ; also well suited for poultry (chicken, turkey).
Organic grapes are cultivated in vineyards banning the use of artificial inputs, including synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. In organic vineyards, a bountiful growing year relies instead on maintaining strict standards for soil health-for example, upping biodiversity through crop rotation.
No Added Sulfites
In the fermenting and bottling phase of winemaking, organic wines cannot contain added sulfites. Sulfites–also known as sulfur dioxide, a naturally occurring preservative in most wines and an inherent by-product of alcoholic fermentation-can be manually added by the winemaker to up the sulfite level in their bottle of vino, thereby increasing its lifespan. If a winemaker opts to add sulfites but otherwise follows organic farming practices, the wines can’t be labeled “organic.” However, they can be classified as wine “made from organic grapes.”
The exception: bottles produced in Europe and Canada, where organic wine standards allow small amounts of added sulfites as long as the total quantity doesn’t exceed 100 parts per million (ppm) for reds and 150 ppm for whites. (To compare, conventional wine standards in these countries allow sulfite levels up to 150 ppm for red wine and 200 ppm for white.)
