Food Pairings for Vissoux Chermette Fleurie les Garants
95+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): Pierre-Marie Chermette's Fleurie 'les Garants' is a stunning young example of the 2011 vintage, with an almost 'meaty' character to the fleshy and bottomless fruit here that is truly exceptional... The stunning nose is very pure and sappy, but also classic and soil-driven in its aromatic mélange of pomegranate, red plums, complex soil tones, fresh herbs (mostly redolent of mustard seed and lavender), raw cocoa, incipient notes of gamebird, a bit of youthful pepperiness and a whisper of cedar in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and stunning in its purity, with a rock solid core of fruit, ripe, moderate tannins, laser-like focus and absolutely stunning length and grip on the primary and very, very promising finish... This is brilliant Fleurie in the making! 2014-2035. (Sep/Oct 2012)
