2011 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly - France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Côte de Brouilly
Can a wine be too delicious? This sure seems to be. On opening it was exploding with red fruit and backed by minerals. Supple but not flabby, each sip brought me back for the next. Over the course of 3 hours it developed savory elements that added complexity and took the wine from merely delicious (a worthy goal) and added interesting to the mix. All fhis for $20? Sign me up for a whole lot more.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
