The vines are 60yo on average and come from two climats: 0.83ha in Le Mollard (sand and quartz over a pink granite bedrock), and 0.73ha in Buillats (clay). Aged in old barrels and concrete tanks, the sandy soils bring a floral, lifted quality to the nose

Notes on the Producer

Anne-Laure Grillet and Thomas Agatensi joined the winery in 2019, bearing the torch from Marcel Grillet as the 7th generation winemakers at Domaine de la Bonne Tonne. Although 2019 only marks Thomas’ first vintage on his own, his conviction to earnestly represent the best climate of Beaujolais is palpable.  The winery has been practicing organic farming methods since 2003, certified organic since 2006. and utilising different biodynamic preparations since 2007. The winery is composed of 6.5 hectares, with 4 hectares in Morgon, and 2 hectares in Regnié, along with a touch of Beaujolais Blanc. 

After working as a solar panel engineer in Switzerland for 5 years, Thomas briefly worked for Bret Brothers in Macon before moving back to his childhood hometown with Anne-Laure to settle back at Domaine de la Bonne Tonne to take over the family domaine from Marcel. 

Thomas takes his inspiration from the supportive natural winemakers in the area such as Jean-Louis Dutraive, Paul-Henri Thillardon and Yann Bertrand.
