Thivin Cote de Brouilly Vignes 2021 750ml - France Bourgogne

Chateau Thivin is the oldest estate on Mont Brouilly, which has remained in family hands for several generations. Grown on steep slopes, harvested manually and vinified using low intervention techniques so as to maximise terroir expression. 

The Brouilly appellation is capable of producing excellent and complex wines, quite unlike the maligned Beaujolais Nouveau. Brouilly produces fruit forward, medium bodied wines, typically from the Gamay grape. 

Le Sept Vignes is a blend of the seven plots of Chateau Thivin, in an effort to represent the region's terroir. This is a delicious, medium bodied red, with slight tannins and a persistent, juicy red-fruit character. Complex yet easy-drinking in it's youth. This wine will grow in elegance given a few years age. 

"Juicy, focused and concentrated, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Combines power and finesse with a deft hand and finishes long and sappy, with gentle tannins coming in late." 92/100 JR
