Product Description

"This is as good as the best examples of Griottes we have shipped. Les Griottes means "the small cherries" and it is drawn from 15-35 year old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint Vérand (Southern Beaujolais). Here we have yet another reference to jolie vin from this Beaujolais master. On the palate you'll find all the juicy texture, prancing fruit, and crunchy, bright acidity of a great Beaujolais vintage (which '13 certainly is!). Naturally fermented and raised in a mix of the family's ancient concrete vats and steel, this gives you a great insight into the vintage with a lifted fragrance of market-fresh berries, lilac and cherrystone fruit. In the mouth there is wonderful, sweet flesh and mouth-watering freshness. Delicious and fabulous value." Winemaker's Note

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Vissoux Les Griottes Beaujolais 2012
Les Griottes means "small cherries"; exactly the kind of fruit character that you will find in spades in this juicy wine. Produced from 15-35 year old vines grown on dark granite soil in Saint Vérand area (of Southern Beaujolais), here we have yet another convivial, lip-smacking, ultra pure stunner from this benchmark grower that La Revue du Vin de France recently described as "...a reference for 30 years." On the palate you find the subtle sense of creaminess offset by crunchy raspberry seed, the fruity acidity that we have come to love in the Chermette's entry level bottling. Flavours of mixed, fresh berries, red cherries, and bay leaf hints abound in this stylish and refreshing wine. Simply, a deliciously fleshy, jubey, fresh & light red that can't help to evoke Eric Asimov's quote in the New York Times a few years ago; "Few wines can induce joy the way Beaujolais does...".
