Thivin, Brouilly Reverdon 750ml 2018France, Beaujolais
'Deep, bright-hued violet. Fresh dark berries, candied flowers, allspice and a hint of blood orange on the expansive nose. Sappy and appealingly sweet, offering pliant cherry and black raspberry flavors that deepen and spread out quickly with air. Delivers a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes very long and smooth, with bright, mineral-driven thrust, silky tannins and lingering floral and spice notes. Drink 2022 - 2028.' – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 92/100
'Richer, more voluptuous and larger-scaled than its 2017 counterpart, the 2018 Brouilly Reverdon unfurls with a ripe bouquet of mulberries, blackberries and licorice. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with broad shoulders and a generous, expressive profile. Drink 2019 - 2025.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 91/100
'Lively acidity cuts through the bright cherry and currant notes of this mouthwatering red, showing details of white pepper, wet stone and dried herb that dovetail onto the finish. Offers light, integrated tannins, with great energy and focus throughout. Drink now through 2024.' – Gillian Sciaretta, Wine Spectator, 91/100
About Château Thivin:
Located in Beaujolais, Château Thivin is known as the oldest wine estate in Mont-Brouilly and has passed through 6 generations of the Geoffray family. The Geoffray’s philosophy is respect for their terroir and sustainable farming for future generations. They focus on farming Gamay for their cru and village wines, and Chardonnay for their Beaujolais Villages Blanc. Wine Advocate calls Château Thivin ‘a historic estate that continues to rank among the reference points for classical, age-worthy cru Beaujolais.’
