The wine is a clear but dark purpley-plum colour. The colour density is not the only surprise - it’s deeper and much more serious than I expected. Bright, sweet strawberry, plum and tobacco notes are interlaced with savoury game elements, while fresh pepper and liquorice compliment delicate tannins. This well-structured wine finishes long, dry and smooth. Pleasurable drinking.
“Usually the most concentrated and full flavoured of Thivin’s offerings. Rich scents of strawberry and plum jam, sniff of mint and green herbs, touch of gamey savouriness. Tighter than expected in the palate – lots of fresh cherry-berry fruit flavour, touch of choc-milkiness to tannins, lick of basil herbiness, dusting of pepper, squeaky acidity keeping the wine trim, taut and long in flavour. Control and length is the theme. Ease of drinking is too, but it feels a class above many, many Beaujolais. Beaujolais trainspotters should get a kick out of this”. 92 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
