Vinous Media 93
"Bright ruby-red. Fresh cherry and black raspberry on the nose, with complicating hints of candied lavender and licorice. Sappy and incisive, offering sweet dark berry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of spicecake. Shows impressive lift, focus and energy on the long, spice-tinged finish, with the floral note echoing emphatically."

In the hamlet of "Le Vissoux", that is the cradle of the family, is our wonderfully sited single stretch southwest facing vineyard.
Contrary to most of southern Beaujolais soil which is limestone-clay, the soil at Domaines CHERMETTE is granitic.
This specificity contributes to giving more structure to the wines made here that include: Beaujolais les Griottes, Cuvée Traditionnelle made using grapes from old vines and part of our white Beaujolais.
These wines are matured in our carefully preserved beautiful oak-tun lined vaulted cellar built by Pierre-Marie Chermette's great grandfather.
