We adopted the "Chermette" as our "House Nouveau" back in 2014, when we first had the opportunity to try it and were absolutely blown away by its quality. It continues to overperform and will, once again, fool your taste buds into thinking you are drinking a "Cru" Beaujolais!
Owners Pierre-Marie and Martine Chermette were among the first in Beaujolais to use sustainable agricultural practices, shunning the use of any chemicals in the vineyard and encouraging as much life in the soil as possible. They prune hard to keep yields low, harvest by hand when the grapes are fully ripe and regularly carry out ‘green harvests’ to further reduce the yields and ensure full ripeness for the harvest. The wines are made with minimal intervention: wild yeasts, minimal sulfur additions, and no filtration if possible.
This years "Chermette" displays enticing aromas of plush, red fruits. The palate abounds with ripe strawberries, red currants, and red currants, with accents of savory herbs. Vibrant acidity on the finish brings it all into harmonious balance. This wine will be the star on Thanksgiving Day, from the cocktail hour to the appetizers to the main attraction, the turkey dinner. Stock up while it lasts - and be sure to save a bottle or two for yourself.
