Chateau Thivin

Chateau Thivin

Château Thivin, located in the Côte de Brouilly, is renowned for its distinctive volcanic soils and early-ripening fruit. This small appellation, one of the ten Beaujolais Crus, offers a unique terroir expertly showcased through the estate's various single-vineyard cuvées. Each of the estate's ten plots, spread around the steep hill of Côte de Brouilly, brings its own character, combining to create fresh, structured, and concentrated wines, making them appealing both in youth and with age.

Owned by the Geoffray family since 1877, the estate is managed by fifth-generation Claude and Evelyne Geoffray, along with their son Claude-Edouard and daughter-in-law Sonia. Château Thivin spans 27 hectares across more than ten distinct plots in Côte de Brouilly, with additional plots in Brouilly and Theizé. The estate produces at least five single-vineyard cuvées each vintage, along with their flagship blend, Sept Vignes, which harmoniously combines the characteristics of seven different parcels.

The vineyards feature the three signature soil types of the appellation: blue volcanic rock, granite, and clay/limestone, supporting primarily Gamay and Chardonnay. Sustainable viticulture practices are a hallmark of Château Thivin, including grass between vines to prevent erosion, encourage soil health, and use pygmy sheep for winter grass control. Grapes are sorted meticulously and vinified separately in cement cuves, aged in foudres for six to twelve months. Certified by Terra Vitis and transitioning to organic farming, the winery also employs biodynamic practices like bottling at the full moon.
