An everyday drinking styled wine with ripe juicy flavours would match nicely with one of the following: smoked salmon horseradish mousse, roasted sea bass with tomato coulis and fennel salsa, five-spice pork and green bean stir-fry and warm jasmine rice salad with shrimp and Thai herbs.

Youthfully light cherry in color, offering red stone fruit on the nose. The fruit is very stylishly extracted, generous, ripe and not shackled by too much tannin. The acidity is an integral part of the palate, keeping those cherry fruits juicy!

Pierre Marie Chermette took over the running of the family domaine in 1982. Since then he has turned the place around by fusing some of the lost traditions of Beaujolais with a modern approach in the cellar. Chermette rejects the idea of excessively high yields, otherwise common in Beaujolais, which prevents the grapes from ripening properly. He instead prefers low yields, which, in turn means higher sugar levels and obviates the need to chaptalise. Chermette uses natural yeasts which confer a character of red fruits to the wine rather than the artificially prepared yeasts which lend the famous, but not such attractive character of bubble gum and banana.
