Tasting Together

This was taken on a visit a few weeks ago to Château Thivin in Beaujolais. As my friend Elena said, “It looks like only one of you was spitting!”

The glass on my left is the 1999 Côte de Brouilly; the one on the right is the 1987. Both were lovely – still fresh, vibrant and full of fragrance after eight and 20 years, respectively. No one can say that cru Beaujolais doesn’t age, especially from elite producers such as Claude Geoffray.
