" Bright and aromatic with crushed strawberries and raspberries. Medium-bodied, firm and fresh. Some chewy tannins and a flavorful finish."

John Gilman 94
" In contrast to the Poncié bottling, the les Garants lieu à dit is located down in the section of Fleurie that borders on Moulin-à-Vent, and like the Coudert’s Clos de la Roilette, was actually once part of Moulin-à-Vent, rather than Fleurie. Monsieur Chermette gives this wine a bit of new oak, which works beautifully with the more structured personality of this cru, as it offers up a fine nose of black cherries, pomegranate, dark soil tones, gamebird, espresso and a touch of oak spice. On the palate the wine is deep, pure, full and potentially sappy at the core, with finegrained tannins, excellent focus and grip and a very long, poised and nascently complex finish"

Domaine Vissoux

View all from Domaine Vissoux
Domaine VissouxIn 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.
