About This Wine:
Beautiful cherry red colour, floral, fruity bouquet, round on the palate with fresh garden fruits; underpinned by supple tannins. Serving temperature: 14-16°C.
On a due east-facing 5.5 ha hillside, on a formation of the first foothills of the Massif Central, with a soil of friable pink granite containing little organic matter. Two cadoles (dry-stone huts), one from the 18th century, testify to the historic nature of this terroir.
This is a part of the appellation that we particularly like, for the Granitic purity and its poor soils that give distinctive wines with very elegant fruit aromas.
Grassed or tilled strips break up this terroir prone to storms, little sensitivity to diseases because of the well-drained soil, demands few treatments in Summer. The grapes are picked by hand and transported in small trays in order to preserve their quality.
Vinification in whole bunches in our hillside cellars, whose successive levels allow us to make maximum use of gravity, so as to avoid using either pumps or conveyors for the grapes.
Maceration for only 8 days in order to capture all the freshness of the fruit, matured for 7 months in cement vats.
Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Brouilly Reverdon has turned out especially well this year, bursting from the glass with notes of peonies and rose petals mingled with wild berries and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and vibrant, it's melting and perfumed, with exquisitely refined tannins and a long, aromatic finish. This is as good a Brouilly as I can ever remember tasting from ChÃ¢teau Thivin." - William Kelley (29th May 2020)
