Long regarded as the top domaine in the Côte de Brouilly, Château Thivin is also the oldest estate on Mont Brouilly, built on an ancient volcano back in the 15th century. Run by the third generation of the Geoffray family, who have been farming the estate since 1977, the current proprietor's--Claude, his wife Evelyne and their son Claude-Edouard--practice lutte raisonnée, planting herbs and flowers between the rows of 50-plus-year-old vines, plowing regularly and using natural composts to keep their vines healthy. The Côte de Brouilly comes from Gamay vines planted on south, east and southeast facing, steep slopes, hand-harvested and aged for six months in foudres. Charming now, this wine will become more elegant with a few years in bottle.
