From: Beaujolais, France
Tasting Notes: This wine has a perfume of wilted rose petals with subtle notes of oak, spice, pure and intense black cherry fruit, and blueberry pie. Concentrated, fleshy, and at times almost candied hints of cherry, strawberry, and raspberry are perceptible on the wine’s smooth, full-bodied palate.
"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, 92 points
"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." –View from the Cellar, 91 points
