Chateau Thivin 2020 Cote de Brouilly, Beaujolais
Chateau Thivin is back to form with its 2020 Cote de Brouilly, a perfectly executed Gamay Noir with incredible balance, fresh flavors, exemplary fruit all wrapped up in an elegance that you rarely find in Beaujolais these days. Full in the mouth without any hint of pushing tannin. Its pure expression is not really a throwback, but it recalls an earlier era of charm and grace. This is dinner wine of the first order. Game meats, pork, chicken, salads are ideal foods with this wine. We had it with a pizza and it was brilliant!
