The Wine

Details

Made from grapes grown from 8.3 hectares of vines grown on the blue granite slopes of my favourite volcano. This is the wine which has been instrumental in building the reputation that Château Thivin enjoys today.

A lovely garnet with purple-blue tinges, fresh ripe Gamay fruit, violet and peony aromas and delicate acidity to balance The abundance of flavour combines to create a quintessentially fine example of just what a Côte de Brouilly should be. Delicious and easy to drink young or after a few years, this wine can be vivacious in its youth yet becomes somewhat more elegant with time. Long savoury finish. Keeps up to 8 years.

Excellent with meat dishes and in particular poultry dishes with rich sauces and magret de canard. Particularly good with a fine crumbly goat's cheese.

Still my ideal bojo

Côte de Brouilly "Les 7 Vignes" 2016, Thivin

I’be been flirting lately with other Beaujolais but inevitably have come back to Thivin for its balance of fresh fruitiness and velvet strength.........the perfect bojo. Years ago we used to buy it at the Chateau on our annual spring sortie to the Beaujolais. I seem to remember a rather regal “ grande dame “.
