This stunning Cru Beaujolais will age for a significant period of time, the beneficiary of the famous volcanic soils of Chateau Thivin's holdings. The wine is quite rustic - the result of these blue, volcanic soils, whilst nonetheless retaining classic, regional sour-red berry elements.
Bright and lively, all the raspberries and some pretty floral notes, plus a dab of spice. It’s medium-bodied at most, fresh cranberry acidity and flavour in the mix, and a fine-boned finish of clarity and excellent length. Joyous wine, almost playful, but it also fleshed out nicely as it took time in the glass.
