A rather rare and atypical cuvee for a Beaujolais. We choose a rich and powerful cuvee of wine made using the grapes from old vines and matures it in the small oak barrels until the April following the harvest. It is a warm, gastronomic wine, almost a cru.

Wine Advocate 92 Points "As I've written before, this bottling represents one of the great values in French wine, and the 2018 Beaujolais-Villages Coeur de Vendanges will not disappoint long-time fans of the cuvée. Wafting from the glass with a rich bouquet of dark berry fruit, rose petals and licorice, it's full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, its powdery tannins concealed in a lavish core of succulent, lively fruit. A wine to purchase by the case, expect it to offer irresistible drinking for the better part of a decade." -William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Beaujolais "Coeur de Vendanges" from Pierre Marie-Chermette, made from vines now over one hundred years of age, is excellent in this vintage. As I noted in the introduction, the vintage has given this wine a bit more mid-palate stuffing than in most years, as the wine offers up a ripe and classy bouquet of red and black cherries, pomegranate, violets, a touch of espresso, a superb base of soil tones, a touch of vinesmoke and a topnote of currant leaf. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a great core of fruit, superb backend mineral drive and a bit of backend tannin on the long, well-balanced and classy finish. This comes in at fourteen percent and has fine musculature this year, but all of its customary freshness and precision.
