Another installment in our mission to help elevate Beaujolais in the public eye above and beyond the stigma of "Nouveau." Sweet, humble Beaujolais, that was once considered Burgundy, is quite capable of producing some of our favorite nuanced and thoughtful wines.

As is the case here from Domaine Chermette, a 5th generation Beaujolais winemaker committed to sustainable farming and low-intervention winemaking. These 100% Gamay grapes are fermented as whole clusters in concrete tanks and then aged in ancient foudres, preserving freshness and signature Beaujolais granitic minerality. This easy-drinking red is full of fleshy fruits (like the cherries its name translates to) and a buoyant acidity to finish, unhindered by any tannins.

Food Ideas: Thanksgiving, grilled chicken thighs, red beans and rice, pan-roasted black cod w/creamy corn, steamed artichokes, meat and cheese boards
