In 1857 a Chapel was built to protect the vines from the oïdium devastation. This is the site of Chateau Thivin’s highest altitude single vineyard, the most perfumed and generally the highest acid wine. The blue diorite gives minerality and the high elevation gives the wine an elegance even though the south facing (up to 50% slope) hillside ensures ripeness.

From a steeply sloping, southerly exposed parcel that's comparatively high in altitude, Thivin's 2018 Côte de Brouilly La Chapelle is especially successful this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, raspberries, spices and dried roses. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with satiny structuring tannins, excellent depth and concentration and lively, succulent acids. WILLIAM KELLY, The Wine Advocate.
