2018 Château Thivin - Brouilly Reverdon (90 pts) @chateauthivin @kermitlynchwine · ℹ️ This wine is 💯Gamay in the Cru Beaujolais sub-region of Brouilly. Reverdon is a single 5.5 ha parcel with eastern exposure on a hillside of Mont Brouilly. The soil is pink granite and sand. The average vine age is 45 years old. The domaine began conversion to organic viticulture in 2008. Grapes are hand-harvested, and each parcel is vinified separately. The entire winery gravity fed for minimal movement of the wines. The grapes are fermented whole cluster with minimal Carbonic Maceration. The grapes macerate for 8 days and then are matured in cement vats for 7 months before bottling· 👁 Medium- ruby color with a purple hue· 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of just-picked ripe raspberry, redcurrant, rose petals, white pepper, and wet rock· 👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, low ripe tannins, medium alcohol (13%), and medium body. A chalky texture to the wine. A medium length finish of fresh raspberry and wet rock· 🔔 Hands down one of the best Brouilly on the market. A very vibrant wine with great acidity and an impeccably fresh fruit profile. It is as if you picked raspberries and roses at the same time, then made an elixir out of them. I could drink this wine all summer. Put a slight chill on it, and you have a great light red for the heat. Stunning quality to price ratio· 💰 ~$27 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #gamay #beaujolais #chateauthivin #brouilly #summerwine
