These vines are located on the lower slopes of the south side of Morgon’s famous hill, the Côte de Py. The slope is of medium grade, and the soils consist of a mix of granite sands and metamorphic stones that were once basalt before becoming a hard schist, often with a bluish-green hue. The hill stands alone, separate from the granite hillsides to the west. The climate here is warm to hot, and the old vines are due to be replanted in 2020 because they are chaotically laid out and very difficult to work by hand with the small machines Anthony and his father use.

In the vinification process, all wines at Thevenet’s cellar undergo carbonic maceration without any sulfur added until just before bottling, and the temperatures are kept no lower than 16°C. No yeast is added during the 20 days of "infusion" style fermentation, which involves little to no movement of the grapes. All wines complete malolactic fermentation, which typically starts and finishes during primary fermentation—a common occurrence among natural wines made in Beaujolais. There is no fining or filtration.

The wines are aged for 7 months in old 600-liter barrels without sulfur until bottling. They are not racked until bottling, and SO2 is never more than 15mg/l or ppm, a very low dose of sulfites.
