Pierre-Marie Chermette is located in the hamlet of Le Vissoux in the southern Beaujolais region. With his wife Martine, Pierre-Marie owns and operates Domaine du Vissoux. The estate has been in existence since the 17th century, and Pierre-Marie’s family has been involved in winemaking in the region for generations.
Fleurie is a village located near the center of Beaujolais, and the Beaujolais Cru appellation named for it encompasses nearly 2,000 acres of vineyards.
Rust in color. 13% ABV. Red fruits, flowers and soil on the nose. Light body with medium acidity. Fresh, juicy strawberry, cherry, saline and minerals on the palate. Delicious wine! There is structure here that warrants cellaring for another 2-4 years. A steal at a little over $30 or so and an ’09 that lives up to the hype of the vintage.
