Thivin Beaujolais Villages Rosé 2018

Now for something completely different. You won’t find many rosés made like this, in the Beaujolais or anywhere else. It is fermented with ambient yeasts, completes malolactic, and is bottled only when the wine is deemed 'ready'. Thivin makes it like any other serious wine of and allows it to run its natural course rather than manipulating it to "some 'designer' specs and rushing it into bottle. The result is a sleek, nervy, mineral-laced, suave rosé that expresses the nuances of where it comes from...granite soils outside the cru of Brouilly. From a one-hectare parcel of 50-year-old vines in sand and pink granite, there's succulent flesh and a mouthwatering finish punctuated by a pleasant salinity, but the insistent minerality is a definite stylistic distinction.
90 Points! Shimmering onion skin. Lively, mineral- and spice-inflected red berry and floral scents, along with a subtle herbal element that builds with air. Dry and focused on the palate, offering tangy red currant, strawberry and fennel flavors that slowly unfurl on the back half. The mineral and floral notes echo on a long, nervy finish that leaves a suggestion of bitter cherry pit behind. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
