With a fresh chicken salad this young Gamay went down well.

2012 Côte de Brouilly Les Sept Vignes, Château Thivin
The nose is young and seedy and at first a bit shy. It needed some time in a Riedel Extreme Pinot Noir glass to show off notes of red cherries, plums, some blueberries, forest floor and a touch of dog fur. Interesting and lively. Very good.
The taste is young, tight and cool with notes of lingonberries, red cherries, cherry pips, minerals and a touch of smoke. A medium long finish with a high acidity. Still very young, this need 3-5 years in the cellar.
