Pierre-Marie Chermette 2020 "Beaujolais Primeur Griottes NOUVEAU", Beaujolais, France
A masterful 5th generation grower, Pierre has maintained the strict traditions of his ancestors and of the region, with more tenacity than most. Despite fashions changing, Pierre has, for his entire life, adhered only to the classic methods handed down from his family. This means farming in sustainably a manner as is possible, only using indigenous yeasts for every wine, long fermentations and making whole-cluster (semi-carbonic) wines in the old foudres built by his great-grandfather
Winemaker: Pierre Chermette
Grape Varieties: Gamay
Vinification: Manual harvest at full ripeness, the grapes go through traditional Beaujolais vinification with natural yeasts, no chaptalisation, minimum SO2, pneumatic pressing. Vat selection for the nouveau wine comes a bit later than most, on tasting, whereupon they choose the most supple, fruity wine. This year Chermette was rewarded with a small crop of healthy, concentrated grapes that required very little intervention in the winery.
Tasting Notes: This cuvée is the epitome of Beaujolais Nouveau! This forthright, supple, and easy to drink wine offers the classic red berry aromas and notes while providing unexpected, pleasant structure on the finish.
