Wine AdvocateI might have under-estimated the 2014 Côte de Brouilly when I tasted a barrel sample last year. Here, it is a little more backward on the nose compared directly with the Brouilly Reverdon, although there are some lovely strawberry, cranberry and subtle marine scents to discern. They will come forth with a year or two in bottle. The palate is very well balanced with fine, supple tannin. There is a wonderful salinity to this Côte de Brouilly and impressive focus towards the finish. The tongue tingles long after the wine has departed. What a great Beaujolais from Château Thivin - perhaps their standout release this year.
Wine SpectatorA tangy, crisp red, delivering currant, cherry and leather notes that mingle with spicy underpinnings. A smoky mineral element builds up on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,113 cases imported.
