Pierre Chermette Beaujolais No 2012

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

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.

Strawberry jam nose and strawberries all over the palate... light with few tannins, but very quaffable. (had just a taste at a tasting)

Light with very low tannins; strong "candied apple/cinnamon" nose and palate.

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.

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.
