Food Pairings for Vissoux Chermette Fleurie Poncie
94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): Pierre-Marie Chermette's 2011 Fleurie 'Poncié' is a beautiful wine in the making, with a synthesis of the vintage's intensity of flavor and great transparency coupled to a vibrant sappiness that is quite impressive. The very pure and expressive nose wafts from the glass in a blend of cherries, red plums, blood orange, a touch of cocoa, a lovely base of soil, fresh herbs and dried violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and loaded with almost sweet fruit at the core, with excellent focus and balance, impressive, nascent complexity and stunning length and grip on the very tangy and vibrant finish. This is one 2011 Fleurie that does not seem to need cellaring to start to seduce and should be a superb drink right from the start. Lovely juice. 2012-2022+. (Sep/Oct 2012)
