CHAT THIVIN BROUILLY 16
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.
"Distinguished by subtle flavours of red garden fruits, underlaid with supple, discreet tannins. Year after year the taste of fresh grapes and red garden fruits dominate in this very feminine wine. This wine will retain its fruitiness for four to six years and is the idea partner for fine food such as Poulet de Bresse à la crème, or wild mushrooms." - Winemaker's notes.
