Pierre Chermette Beaujolais 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Brouilly is the largest Cru in Beaujolais. Chermette produces natural wines and this is a beauty! A bouquet full of violets, crystallized black raspberry, rich forest soil, and aromatic candle wax leads to a gorgeous palate full of sweet fruit. This is wonderfully precise with great balance and a tense crisp, tannic note that frames the wonderfully transparent fruit. On the long finish a hint of medicinal herbs adds depth to the fruit and finale return of violets. Beaujolais doesn't get much better than this. 92pts

Pierre Morey:
The total area of the domaine is 11 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the districts of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault. All the vineyards were cultivated following organic agricultural practices from 1992 to 1997, at the end of this period the domaine became 100% biodynamic.

Musty animal nose leading to a big wine with lots of tannins. Black cherry and violet notes come through, but the wine is still a little tight - give it 6 months, or decant. Dry finish with robust tannins and lingering flavors of cured meats.

Bright fruit/cherry palate, light/medium body, light tannins, slight zing of acidity at the end.

Very floral. Think walmart flowers though. A little bit of acid. No - Low tannins.

Brimming with bright, fresh, red raspberry fruit, this is a thirst-quenching wine of purity and finesse. It absolutely shines - even among the scores of lively Beaujolais bottlings on the market today.
