2014 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly Cru Beaujolais

SKU #1228355 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Côte de Brouilly has a focused bouquet and is more serious than the Brouilly, with fresh strawberry mixed with raspberry coulis and cold stone scents. The palate is medium-bodied, supple and fleshy on the entry. The acidity here is beautifully judged with a svelte and quite sensual finish. This is a fine Côte de Brouilly, not complex, but nicely detailed and overflowing with freshness. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

K&L Notes

Long regarded as the top domaine in the Côte de Brouilly, Château Thivin is also the oldest estate on Mont Brouilly, built on an ancient volcano back in the 15th century. Run by the third generation of the Geoffray family, who have been farming the estate since 1977, the current proprietors--Claude, his wife Evelyne and their son Claude-Edouard--practice lutte raisonnée, planting herbs and flowers between the rows of 50-plus-year-old vines, plowing regularly and using natural composts to keep their vines healthy. The Côte de Brouilly comes from Gamay vines planted on south, east and southeast facing, steep slopes, hand-harvested and aged for six months in foudres. Charming now, this wine will become more elegant with a few years in bottle.
