Chateau Thivin "Clos de Rochebonne" Beaujolais Blanc
Of the entire region of Beaujolais, only 3% produces white wine, and Chateau Thivin is one of our favorite producers, making this wine even more special! Farmed at high elevation, the cool nights give focus, and bright, zippy acidity. The wine has a mineral drive thanks to the stony mountainous vineyard, and time in barrels undergoing malolactic fermentation (one of the things that makes wines creamy) gives a subtle richness hinting at magnolia blossom and hazelnuts. All that mineral drive, fresh citrus, and hint of creamy richness give us a wine with balance and charm, so drinkable, this may just be your new favorite!
