2011 Côte de Brouilly Zaccharie - Beaujolais and Beyond

A substantial Beaujolais cru from Beaujolais and Beyond

Beaujolais is traditionally a light, juicy, quaffable wine best drunk young.

This Côte de Brouilly Zaccharie, however, whilst distinctively Beaujolais is quite a substantial wine and still feels too young to be drinking now, despite a couple of years' bottle age.

Château Thivin, Côte de Brouilly Zaccharie, 2011 Deep cherry red in the glass, complex nose of black cherries, mulberries, ginger, spice and florality. Fresh red and black cherry fruit, sweet peppery spice, savoury concentration and minerality. Long with a persistent finish.

Muscular, assertive and complex - will age. Very Good Indeed.

Match with substantial game, such as duck, venison or wild boar.

£21.45; provided for review.
