This Beaujolais cherrybomb is drawn from 20- to 40-year-old vines grown on dark, granite soils around the Chermette homestead in Saint-VĂ©rand (southern Beaujolais). The winemaking here has remained unchanged for decades, with traditional whole-bunch, semi-carbonic ferment in concrete tanks and then maturation in tank and ancient oak casks still the order of the day.

As opposed to his age worthy Crus from Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, et al, Chermette's aim here is to produce something light-bodied and cherry-fruited with reach-for-another-glass charm--something the juicy-crunchy 2018 nails with ease. It's a punchy and buoyant red, from one of the regions great addresses, that goes down dangerously easily.

A typical bouquet of cherries, blackberries and licorice. It's generous without being flabby and so fruity without ever feeling candied or sweet. Every year this is so easy to love. The palate follows with medium bodied, fleshy, forward red fruits and blackberry coulis framed by melting tannins. Delicious! PWS
