Gautier Thévenet is now at the helm of Domaine de la Bongran, located in Clessé in the Haut-Mâconnais region of Burgundy. A worthy heir to his family's Burgundy winegrowing traditions, he cultivates vines in theViré-Clessé appellation. He produces exclusively Chardonnay white wine. This centuries-old estate continues to produce mellow wines known as "levroutés". Since the 2012 vintage, Gautier's vineyards have been certifiedorganic by Ecocert.

Geographical location of Domaine de la Bongran

Domaine de la Bongran comprises fifteen hectares of vineyards in the communes of Clessé and Viré, a region known as the Land of Quintaine, between Tournus and Mâcon. Although the limestone soils are typical of the region, the Quintaine terroir has its own particularities. White marl, similar to chalk, lies at the foot of the vines. This soil contributes to the finesse and complexity of the wines produced by the estate.
