Thivin is an institution in the Côte de Brouilly appellation: the splendid château dates back to 1383, and the Geoffray family has a long history of producing fabulous wines from this terroir. The 2014 edition has a tempting perfume of little berries—tempting you to down the contents of your glass, that is. Before doing so, take a moment to savor its exceptional complexity. I find a touch of sanguinity, plus some grit and tannin—a peppery crunch reminiscent of the côte’s rocky blue schist. According to the Geoffrays, this wine “knows how to have charm and liveliness in its youth, just as it will become noble and elegant after three to eight years.” –Anthony Lynch
