Now that I have kids, I think a lot about family legacy. The most substantial heirloom in my family is a small cabin my great-grandfather built near Santa Cruz in the 1930s. Eventually it may pass to me, and the responsibility is often on my mind. My familial duties pale, though, in comparison to those of Claude Geoffray of Château Thivin, whose family estate dates back to the fourteenth century! So how does Claude honor a legacy that is more than six centuries old? He vinifies the oldest and best parcels of Gamay into the deepest, most structured, most elegant Beaujolais I’ve ever tasted. I think I’ll take a few bottles to the family cabin. –Dustin Soiseth
