[SOLD-OUT] Thivin Cote de Brouilly Griottes 2018

Region: France, Beaujolais, Cote du Brouilly

Variety: 98% Gamay, 2% Chardonnay (for added delicacy)

'It is no surprise that Château Thivin is the benchmark domaine of the Côte de Brouilly; everything about it is exceptional.' Kermit Lynch.

'Based in the Côte de Brouilly cru, this is benchmark Beaujolais: the Thivin wines are classic and structured, and repay ageing.' Jamie Goode, Wineanorak

"everything about it is exceptional. Built in the fifteenth century on an ancient volcano which juts out steeply into the valley below, Thivin is the oldest estate on Mont Brouilly... Thivin’s Côte de Brouilly parcels are predominantly south-facing and are planted entirely with Gamay vines that average 50 years of age. The soil is plowed and composted regularly while cover crops are left between some rows to encourage microbiotic activity. Absolutely no insecticides are used. On a slope with a grade of 48% and crumbly surface, implementing these techniques is essential to safeguard the soil from erosion, but it isn’t easy! Each section of the vineyard is harvested and vinified separately to preserve the unique characteristics"
