Head-turner. Super fragrant, with dark berry, lavender and smoke aromas and a touch of volatility. This is super complex and layered, at the same time powerful and structured, as well as precise and elegant. Fruit comes in waves, balanced by earthy tones and some granitic energy giving focus to the finish. Great stuff.

Wow. Pure and exhilaratingly ripe. Translucent magenta in the glass. Perfumed and packed with purple raspberries. Finishing with a pleasant brambly zing. Only a slight hint of tannins, and while I think this could handle some time in bottle it’s just so pretty right now. One of the top three producers in Bojo imo.

14% alcohol cru Beaujolais. It’s very pretty and well made but like wtf is going on. It tastes like it could have come from Russian river valley. Not that there’s anything wrong with that necessarily and again it’s very tasty

Absolutely excellent in youth. Aromatics and palate are exuberant dark berries & black pepper. Perfectly balanced between fruit & structure. This has a long life ahead, but hard to ignore as a youngster. Truly great.

Nose of red fruit, pomegranate, freshly cracked black pepper, lilac. Minimal tannins and a punch of acidity. The palate is simple and maybe a bit closed, but also similar to the nose. I’d give it time. There’s enough acidity to keep.

Has Beaujolais made a pact with Bacchus? Well, certainly Chateau Thivin has. This is a gorgeous Gamay that drinks beautifully alone or, if you must, served with your favorite dish. My...what a challenge for any gourmand...with food or without. 🤔
