"Clos de Rochebonne" Burgundy Report by Bill Nanson

Bill Nanson tells us about his visit of Clos de Rochebonne with Claude Vincent on mai 22th 2019

"Château Thivin’s Clos Rochebonne is a Beaujolais white that I’ve always respected, so it was with some relief that I picked it out blind in my tasting of Beaujolais whites in my March report. So why not make a visit to see what is so special about this place?...."

Burgundy Report by Bill Nanson

Mainly Beaujolais – new names & many magnums

Bien Boire en Beaujolais 2019 afforded me to the opportunity of finding a few (relatively) new names – here are 10 of them. Where possible I mainly tasted their 2017s. The domaines were not all from Beaujolais – truth be told, there’s some very nice Mâconnais domaines too! Plus I had the chance to enjoy a large table of magnums – this time, all from Beaujolais.

2009 Château Thivin, Côte de Brouilly Godefroy
Still full-coloured. Some cushioned floral aspects above, tighter below. Full, lots of weight and energy together, still some astringency – far from ready but full of finishing energy. Excellent…

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!"

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.

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."
