Tasting notes:
'The 2018 Côte de Brouilly Les Griottes de Brulhié derives from a sunny, steeply sloping, southeasterly exposed site. Bursting with aromas of cherries, cassis, smoked meats, spices and wild berries, it's medium to full-bodied, enveloping and succulent, with an open-knit, giving profile despite some youthfully chewy tannin. It, too, is showing well.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100

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.’
