Staff Pick Notes

Beaujolais "Pierre Chermette",

Consistently producing some of the best vintages in the Beaujolais over the past two decades, Pierre Chermette and his wife Martine are easily one of my favorite wine makers working today. Ahead of their time as far as applying organic, natural, and biodynamic wine-making practices, their vines have natural low yields of extremely high quality, ripe Gamay fruit. Non-Chaptilized, extended fermentation in oak foudre using only natural yeasts found on the grapes, no use of sulfur, and completely unfiltered. The wine is violet-blue in color and slightly cloudy in the glass, with aromas of fresh berries and wet earth. The wine is rich and fresh on the palate with fresh fruit and a great mix of minerals and acidity. Widely versatile with food or simply on its own, serve with a slight chill. This is quite simply great wine.

Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine...
