DESCRIPTION

The new release of the old vine “Cuvée Traditionelle” from Pierre-Marie Chermette is a beautiful bottle of wine that has to be one of the most poised and gorgeously balanced examples of the vintage. The wine offers up a very pure and vibrant,bouquet of cherries, pomegranate, a touch of raw cocoa, woodsmoke, fresh herbs, gentle nutskins, violets and a very complex base of stony soil tones. On the palate the wine is medium-full and laser-like in its focus, with a fine core of fruit, good, tangy acids, superb soil inflection and outstanding length and grip on the slightly tannic finish. This is still a very primary wine and there is little doubt that as good as this wine is to drink today (and believe me, it is already very, very, very good), a few years in the cellar will allow this wine to really blossom and start to hit on all cylinders. A great Beaujolais that weighs in at all of twelve percent alcohol this year! 2010-2025+.  93  View from the Cellar - John Gilman
