Pierre Chermette Vissoux Les Griottes Beaujolais 2018


Pierre Chermette Vissoux Les Griottes Beaujolais 2018

What do these icons mean?
Les Griottes means 'the small cherries' in reference to the grove of cherry trees that flank the vineyard. Vissoux's entry cuvée is drawn from 20-40 year old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint-Vérand (central Beaujolais). The winemaking here has remained unchanged during Pierre-Marie Chermette's tenure, so traditional, whole bunch, semi-carbonic ferment in concrete and maturation in tank and generations-old oak tuns. The difference here is a short maceration (4 or so days) and less time in vats. The aim here is to produce something light bodied and red fruited with reach-for-another-glass deliciousness.

The Wine Front – I tasted this at room temperature then put it in the sample fridge (very cold) and tasted it. I liked it both way, but geez, did it work a treat as it came up from that mini-bar fridge. Organic farming and low yield vines are the baseline here. This is entry level stuff, but righteous. I could write ‘cherry juice with light tannins’ and that could do me. The essence of cherries is writ large in this utterly delicious, fun loving, wildly drinkable wine. Scents of cherry, medicinal elixir (in a nice way!), sweet herbs. Flavours of similar with ultra crisp acidity and a barely there pucker of chalky tannins. I wish every bar splashed this into a glass when you asked for a light, quaffable red. Simple stuff done so well.
