2019 Pierre-Marie Chermette Griottes Primeur - Beaujolais Nouveau, France
This cuvée is the epitome of Beaujolais Nouveau - the first red wine of the vintage from the Northern Hemisphere - fresh, ripe, light and eminently quaffable! Yet Chermette’s version remains an honest, high-integrity natural wine like all of their more serious wines. 100% Gamay fermented using a technique called carbonic-maceration which emphasizes freshness while suppressing the tannins. As such, it’s super supple and easy to drink. A charming wine that pairs perfectly with Turkey, especially if it’s a touch on the dry side - consider this your Thanksgiving dinner insurance policy!
