Aromas of cherries, raspberries, spices and rose hips introduce the 2019 Fleurie Poncié, a medium to full-bodied, pretty and fine-boned wine that’s elegant and precise, built around lively acids and powdery tannins. It’s a particularly bright, vibrant Fleurie from Chermette. 93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Chermette’s Poncié cuvée is drawn from a beautiful 4.5-hectare site of 45-year-old vines on pink granite soils. It delivers Chermette’s most seductive and graceful Cru bottling, especially when young. Poncié is one of a handful of celebrated highland terroirs along the ridge high above the village. In 2019 this southeasterly-facing site has delivered a pretty, aromatic and spicy wine with fabulous freshness and drive.
