Chateau Thivin 2018 (France: Burgundy - Beaujolais) (ID# 1391)

Name Chateau Thivin 2018 (ID# 1391)
Varietal Cote de Brouilly
Region France: Burgundy - Beaujolais
Notes "The 2018 Côte de Brouilly is still a little closed after its recent bottling, but it's a promising wine in the making, unwinding in the glass with scents of cherries, plums, licorice and rich soil tones, complemented by floral top notes that blossom as the wine sits in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and satiny, with a textural, enveloping profile, a deep and voluminous core, ripe but succulent acids and powdery structuring tannins." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Shimmering purple. Assertive dark berry, cherry, spicecake and floral pastille scents are complemented by suggestions of succulent herbs and licorice. Sappy and deeply concentrated on the palate, offering mineral-laced bitter cherry and blackberry preserve flavors that stretch out and turn sweeter with aeration. Youthfully gripping tannins add framework to the finish, which lingers with outstanding, mineral-driven tenacity." (Josh Raynold, Vinous) "This young wine still has youthful tannins as well as ebullient berry fruits. Everything will soften as it matures to bring a ripe wine, fruity but with a dry core of tannins." (Wine Enthusiast) "Peppery aromas line the tart cherry and red currant notes of this minerally red. Details of herb, smoke and licorice drop echo on the lightly tannic, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2023. 835 cases imported." (Wine Spectator) Wine Spectator: 90 points
