Chateau Thivin, Cote de Brouilly: 2005

May 19, 2008

~$17US, 100% Gamay, Cote de Brouilly, Cru Beaujolais, France

Delicate floral nose. High-toned palate, with pure and light cherry flavors supported by a tremendous acidic backbone. Graphite and lavender. Fattened up nicely with air, making me feel that this could live a few more years in the cellar. A perfect pairing with goat cheese, and one of those rare red-wines to enjoy with fish. Love the old-school label.
