An intensely flavourful single vineyard cuvée that will gain in complexity with time in the cellar. More info
La Chapelle comes from a parcel located at the summit of the hill in Brouilly. It is characterised by its arid soils with steep slopes. In Château Thivin, harvests are manual, vinification in whole bunches and the wine is then matured in oak casks. The wine is ruby red with hints of blue. It is redolent with fruity notes and hints of spice on the nose.
Château Thivin is situated in the heart of Beaujolais, around the hill of Brouilly. The origins of this domain date back to the 12th century and the the first part of the manor house was built in the 14th century. In 1877, Zaccharie Geoffray bought Château Thivin at an auction with just under two hectacres of vines. It was his son Claude who really grew the domain from 1894. The next Claude, son of the first, took over the domain and dedicated himself to wine prodution with his wife Yvonne. Having not had children themselves, it was their nephew Claude who then took over the domain before handing it over to his own son Claude-Edouarde in 2007, thus keeping it in the family. The vineyard now covers 27 hectacres and is cultivaed with great care and without the use of insecticide. In the chai, the wines are matured in oak casks in beautiful vaulted cellars. Vinifications are carried out plot by plot. Château Thivin produces some of the best wine in the region thanks to their ability to express the terroir. They are fleshy with extremely delicate tannins.
