Côte De Brouilly, Beaujolais

Château Thivin

Les Sept Vignes Côte de Brouilly Gamay

Vintage 2010 | I cannot recall drinking this Château Thivin before. I was blown away with this twelve year old Côte de Brouilly, that I tasted next to Bordeaux CS/M and Argentinian CS. At the first sniff I thought it to be passed away… but with aeration - I tried from several bottles with a barbecue - it opened up and made a methamorphosis from frog to princess. Beautiful blackberry and other red fruit. Vibrant taste, not showing its age. Drinking supple and giving much joy. Song of praise for Gamay! — 9 hours ago

It’s blossoming with air is my experience & I try always to wait a few years before opening, as I am doing now w two bottles. The American importer describes this wine like a country squire who s not afraid of getting dirty. An aristocratic Beaujo…@Peter van den Besselaar

(Pink Flower) Brouilly Gamay 2018

Presented double-blind. Wine pours a deep ruby and slightly turbid; slight staining of the tears. On the nose, bruised strawberry, some cedar notes, olive brine, cranberry and dried green herbs. On the palate, the wine is bright with mostly red fruits. There’s a slight prick to the tongue. The wine is dry with medium+ acid, medium tannin. Thought it was from Burgundy. Called 2017 Bourgognon Rouge. Dufaitre is making some really enjoyable wines. — 18 days ago

Brouilly Beaujolais 2006

These old Brouilly are really incredible! Intense notes of peppery wild strawberries, truffle evolution, undergrowth, dried flowers, blood orange.. the finish is persistent, like the fragrances of a perfume, intertwining fine tannins and endless acidity veins, with light bitters welcome.

Ces vieux Brouilly sont vraiment incroyables! Notes intenses de fraises de bois poivrées, évolution truffe, sous-bois, fleurs séchées, orange sanguine.. la finale est rémanente, tel les fragrances d’un parfum, entrelaçants tanins fins et nervures d’acidité sans fin, avec de légers amers bienvenus.
