Domaine du Vissoux - Pierre-Marie Chermette Coeur De Vendanges Beaujolais Vignes Centenaires 2018
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages|
|Brand||Domaine du Vissoux - Pierre-Marie Chermette|
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
