Burgundy Reports - 2017 Beaujolais Blanc

Bill Nanson blind tasted a larg range of Beaujolais Blanc and Beaujolais Villages Blanc of 2017

Our "Clos de Rochebonne" 2017 figures under the most apreciated wines!!


"2017 Château Thivin – Family Geoffray, Beaujolais Clos Rochebonne
A rounded citrus nose, perhaps a touch of oak taking any sharp edges off the shape. Big and fresh in the mouth – an attack on the palate. Palate-staining flavour here – that’s impressive. Good character, great flavour. Excellent – one of the few!"

The WINEFRONT

A fantastic article from wine journalist Mike Bennie about our wines, published on the Australian independent wine review site "The WINEFRONT"

Les Septs Vignes 2017

95 points - So the 2017s are clean and bright, not so ripe, but not so lean or perfumed, somewhere in the middle. Wonderful wines. The 15s and 16s can wait.

Dark cherry, touches of game meat, char and toast notes but subtle, whiffs of sweet fruit but the sense is more about savouriness, per se. Succulent in palate, very soft but shape-giving tannins, cranberry lift and pomegranate sour-sweetness. Such a delight. So clean too. So fresh as well. Wonderful.

La Chapelle 2017

94 points - I’m all about 2017 Beaujolais. THE vintage of the ‘teens. Perhaps.

Sour cherry scents, whiffs of cranberry, blackcurrant jubes, salted liquorice, green herbs. The palate is clean and clear, faintly spicy, drives to a gently building pucker, lingers with spice and cherry fruits. Great length, vitality, general sense of purity and drive. It’s a stellar wine here.

Vignes d’Ecussol 2016

91 points – First label with a different label for Chateau Thivin, and with a screwcap!

Spicy scents, red cherry, whiff of tomato leaf, cherry cola. An inviting start. Juicy and gently sweet to taste yet inherently refreshing, vibrant and generally just joyous. Has a cool finish, a touch minty, lovely and gentle. Drinkability is righteous.

Weinsteckbrief von "La Chapelle" auf www.weinplaces.de

Ein sehr informartiver Artikel über den Cru Côte de Brouilly mit einem Steckbrief unserer Cuvée La Chapelle und ein paar tolle Rezeptideen als Paarungsvorschlag. 

"Dunkles Rubinrot und mittlere Viskosität, etwas Cassis in der Nase, geschwenkt treten Aromen weiterer dunkler Beeren hinzu. Im Mund Sauerkirsche und Holunder, der Wein ist kräftig, dabei frisch und zeigt ein ausgewogenes Tannin. Mittlerer Körper und angenehmes Finale."
