Pierre-Marie Chermette’s entry-level cherrybomb is drawn from 20- to 40-year-old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint-Vérand (southern Beaujolais). Traditional whole-bunch, semi-carbonic fermentation in concrete tanks. Matured in both tank and ancient oak casks.
Chermette’s 2019 Les Griottes is moreish, light-bodied, bright and cherry-fruited. Juicy and delicious.
