ABOUT: Around our office Lapierre is the wine of Morgon and Thivin is THE wine of the Cote de Brouilly. In Beaujolais the Cote de Brouilly is one of the southernmost crus and the smallest in the region. Cote means “hillside” in French which doesn’t quite do this topography justice; these are some steep, volcanic hillsides which the Geoffray family of Chateau Thivin have been farming organically since 2008. We Americans are lucky that Mr. Kermit Lynch latched onto Thivin in the 1970’s and hasn’t let go. The wines produced have never been better and remains and archetype not only for Cote de Brouilly but for Beaujolais as a whole.

TASTE: Chateau Thivin’s Cote de Brouilly is a great example of a Cru Beaujolais that approaches the style, make, and model of a Pinot Noir from Burgundy. The tasting note looks similar; aromas and flavors of strawberries and raspberries, dried thyme and rosemary, salt, stone, old cedar, and bone dry with medium+ tannin and acidity. The finish is long with a streak of lime-peel freshness. It’s a lot of fun tasting the evolution of this wine once the cork is popped. Tons of character and an interesting dinner guest.

PAIR: Goat cheese, chimichurri sauce over roasted vegetables, eggplant parmesan, pickled Chioggia beets, and Fennel al forno.
