Château Thivin - Claude Geoffray

Brouilly

Distinguished by subtle flavours of red garden fruits, underlaid with supple, discreet tannins.
A wine to drink throughout the meal.

An old cherry tree, two “cadoles” (traditional shelters), splendid easterly exposure on a medium slope, and a soil of pink granitic sand characterise the seven hectares of our Brouilly Thivin plot, facing Mont Brouilly. Year after year the taste of fresh grapes and red garden fruits dominate in this very feminine wine.

Our winemaking process relies entirely on gravity and uses exclusively whole grapes (which requires expert hands when they are picked), giving this wine a great deal of finesse and delicacy, which will be preserved in stainless-steel vats over winter until the wine is bottled in early spring.

This wine will retain its fruitiness for four to six years and is the idea partner for fine food such as Poulet de Bresse à la crème, or wild mushrooms. Serve between 15 and 18°C.
