Pierre-Marie Chermette 2017 "Les Garants" Fleurie, Beaujolais, France

Winemaker: Pierre Chermette

Grape Varieties: Gamay

Farming: Sustainable

Terroir: 2.7 hectares of a south-west facing area called "Les Garants" in Fleurie. The vines are 35 years old, in pink granitic soil rich in mica and quartz.

Vinification: Manual harvest at full ripeness, the grapes go through traditional Beaujolais vinification with “rack and return”: 10 to 12-day maceration in vats, natural yeasts, no chaptalisation, minimum SO2, pneumatic pressing 

Aging: 6 months in new oak tuns and 10% in new barrels.

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.
