More 2015 Chateau Thivin has arrived!

More 2015 Chateau Thivin has arrived!
The 10 cases 2015 Chateau Thivin we received in early September sold out within a couple of days, we don't expect these next 10 to last very long either. The 2015 Chateau Thivin Brouilly is probably the best value red wine we have in the store. Along with the standard bottling we were able to special order 60 bottles of the 2015 Chateau Thivin Cuvee Zacharie which is a blend of their oldest vines, 40-90 years old, from the two parcels “La Chapelle” (South) and “Godeffroy” (East).

2015 Chateau Thivin Cote de Brouilly....$22.99
“The palate is medium-bodied with intense red and black fruit, superb mineralit√© and harmony, gradually building in the mouth with a compelling, tensile finish. What a fantastic Beaujolais in the making - about as good as it gets to be quite honest. If I taste a better QPR wine this, just impossible.” - Neal Martin The Wine Advocate
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate

Very rare, limited release (has not been scored yet)
2015 Chateau Thivin Cuvee Zacharie....$42.99
This is a very limited release.  Currently we are the only US retailer to list any Cuvee Zacharie on Wine-Searcher and we are the only place in Missouri with this wine.
Old Vine made from 40-90 year old vines
• A blend of their oldest vines from the two parcels “La Chapelle” (South) and “Godeffroy” (East), excellent sun exposure

Beautiful deep red color, very ripe fruit flavor (blackcurrant, blackberry), mouth round and warm with lots of spice. This wine is currently a little young, though already very pleasant, and can be kept for up to ten years.
With food …It is an excellent wine to accompany a fine beef. It is also the ideal partner for Beaufort cheese or goat’s cheese.
