Name Chateau Thivin Reverdon Brouilly 2018 (ID# 3386)
Varietal Gamay
Region France: Burgundy - Beaujolais
Notes "Richer, more voluptuous and larger-scaled than its 2017 counterpart, the 2018 Brouilly Reverdon unfurls with a ripe bouquet of mulberries, blackberries and licorice. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with broad shoulders and a generous, expressive profile." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Fresh dark berries, candied flowers, allspice and a hint of blood orange on the expansive nose. Sappy and appealingly sweet, offering pliant cherry and black raspberry flavors that deepen and spread out quickly with air. Delivers a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes very long and smooth, with bright, mineral-driven thrust, silky tannins and lingering floral and spice notes." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous) "Lively acidity cuts through the bright cherry and currant notes of this mouthwatering red, showing details of white pepper, wet stone and dried herb that dovetail onto the finish. Offers light, integrated tannins, with great energy and focus throughout. Drink now through 2024. 1,900 cases imported." (Wine Spectator) "This wine is a great example of classic Brouilly. It is fruity, just lightly structured with fresh berry flavors that are shot through with acidity. Drinkable now for its fruitiness, it will be even better from late 2020." (Wine Enthusiast)
