Dark fruits and structure of a Moulin-à-Vent, with the perfume and weight of Fleurie. Miam. The newest star in the Chermette firmament, Pierre-Marie’s Saint-Amour is drawn from a tiny parcel of 50-year-old vines from the Champs-Grillés.
Beaujolais, a wine so luscious and simply enjoyable “Ça se bois sous la douche” (It’s a wine you can drink under the shower) as said by the late Marcel Lapierre. Pierre-Marie Chermette certainly embraces the joie de vivre of the statement, but his wines also embody a finesse and seriousness that mark them much beyond the shower and bring them straight to the dinner party, cellar, special date.
Old vine, wild ferment and unfiltered Beaujolais from this wonderful producer who has been over-delivering since the ‘80s. 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. Not only do the Chermettes produce outstanding Beaujolais from the Crus of Moulin à Vent, Brouilly and Fleurie, but they also make some of France’s most highly regarded Crème de Cassis from their own fruit. A man who is never caught without a smile, Pierre-Marie and his wines are collectibles for any real wine lover.
