150cl * 13% ABV * Beaujolais, France
Thivin - the benchmark producer in the Côte de Brouilly, if not the entirety of Beaujolais - blends seven of the best parcels (hence, “Les Sept Vignes”) from different expositions around the region. The result is a lip-smacking red that dances around the palate with peppery spice and wild strawberry. Vivacious and earthy in youth, it gains generosity and structure with a bit of age - well, don’t we all? Drink to 2028+.
