Beaujolais

Chateau Thivin 

Côte de Brouilly 

The Domain

Château Thivin is based in the Côte de Brouilly, one of the smallest of the 10 Beaujolais Crus. The appellation is distinctive for its volcanic soils and early ripening fruit. Each of the estate’s 10 plots occupies a different aspect around the steep hill of Côte de Brouilly. From these, they produce a number of brilliantly crafted single-vineyard cuvées, as well as a blend which very successfully combines the characteristics of each. Each cuvée showcases the personality of its terroir. All bring a freshness, structure and concentration that make them both attractive in youth, and seriously worthy of ageing.
 

The Style

Chateau Thivin has been owned by the Geoffray family since 1877. It is today in the hands of fifth-generation Claude and Evelyne, their son Claude-Edouard and their daughter-in-law Sonia. Their 27 hectares of vines are grown across more than 10 distinct plots in the Côte de Brouilly. There’s also one in the appellation of Brouilly, and another about 20 kilometres to the south, in Theizé, specifically for Chardonnay. They produce at least five single-vineyard cuvées each vintage, as well as their flagship blend of seven of their parcels, Sept Vignes.
