One of the classics. Never a disappointment.

Flower balance. Big for a Beaujolais but at the same time elegant.

I love this wine- fresh, nice stem character, spice, earth, hint of game, bright blue and red fruits, tons of flavor, clean, more body than you would expect for a Gamay and full of flavor. Wines are always wonderful from Chateau Thivin- one of my favorites.

Light bright ruby. Intense, sharply focused aromas of raspberry liqueur, lavender and succulent herbs carry a zesty mineral overtone. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering nervy red berry, blood orange and floral pastille flavors that are underscored by suggestions of licorice and allspice. At once powerful and elegant, finishing with excellent tension, persistence and harmonious tannins. The interplay of power and finesse here is quite impressive. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2018)

Juicy, bright, and flavorful. Touch of spice and tartness towards the end. Dangerously easy-drinking.

Quality-mark in premium part of Brouilly. This wine is closer in style towards Burgundy P.N then actually Beaujolais. Wine is medium bodied and has beautiful concentration of berries and fruits, elegance and balance. Wine is georges overall

Floral, red fruits, med + acidity, classic bojo. But still very young and think it will improve with a few years of age 👌

Red currant, raspberry, etc etc. satiny smooth with some herbal accents and like an orange pith thing. A hint of paprika which is wild crazy. Highly toned and svelte

Red raspberries and some cocoa notes. Plenty of acid and a wash of tannin that lingers. Too young for this...wait a few years and it’ll round into a deelish one.
