Pierre-Marie Chermette, Domaine du Vissoux Origine Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais 2017, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A Beaujolais with some concentration and robustness on the midpalate.
Medium-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity notes of strawberry, red cherry, red plum, kirsch and violet petal.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied gamay has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-acidity and ripe, medium tannin ultimately completing with a medium finish.
The wine is balanced and has more depth than most Beaujolais.
Bottle Note: Winemaking from the heart and soul of the grape.
Price: $21 (I paid $16)
