2020 Pierre-Marie Chermette Beaujolais Les Griottes

Beaujolais, France

This is a great value young-vine Beaujolais from one of the region's leading organic artisan producers.



About The Wine

Les Griottes is Pierre-Marie Chermette's young vine expression of Gamay, with certified organic fruit coming from vines between 20 - 40 years old.

It's produced in a traditional way, with semi-carbonic maceration, however it spends less time on skins than the other cuvees from this producer to preserve freshness and early drinkability.

It brims with life and energy, and smells like a fresh summer pudding.

About Domaines Chermette

Pierre-Marie Chermette took over his family vineyards in 1982, and from the from the very beginning he had a vision to produce a more serious, quasi-Burgundian example of Gamay from his homeland.

When bubble-gummy, frivolous Beaujolais was all the rage, Pierre-Marie was making serious wines for the best restaurants in Paris, and was an early convert to organic viticulture (now certified).

The family estate is based in Saint-Vérand, in the south of Beaujolais where P-M makes wines with family members Martine and Jean-Etienne. They make white, rose and red Beaujolais rosé, from crus such as Brouilly, Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, Saint-Amour, and also Cremants de Bourgogne as well as hand crafted fruit liqueurs.

Additional Info

From The Producer

This is the typical red Beaujolais: fruity, fresh, easy to drink, crunchy with a tangy side of fresh red fruits: morello cherry, raspberry, strawberry. Friendly wine "par excellence", it is drunk with friends in a relaxed way. It goes well with a wide variety of circumstances and meals. It is perfect for barbecues, buffets and little chews.

Made from vines less than 30 years old, this cuvée develops the freshness of red fruits. It is called Griottes because of its aromas but also because the bottom of the vines is bordered by cherry trees. It is an easy-drinking, juicy wine with fruit and freshness.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
