From: Beaujolais, France
Taste: Beautiful light pink color with hints of deeper pomegranate. Light aromas of flowers, raspberry and breezy, fresh linen. Fresh and bright on the palate, with tangy notes of wild strawberry and cherry with an undertone of blackcurrant, dried herb and star anise.
Pairing: This wine would pair nicely with this savory, umami-forward recipe for Pork and Shrimp Won Tons by David Tanis for the NYT. Other pairing ideas include fresh salads, appetizers, picnic fare, omelet's and quiche.
About. The Pierre-Marie Chermette family estate is based in a town called Saint-Vérand, located in the south of Beaujolais. Back in 1873, the Pierre-Marie’s great-grandfather constructed their cellar. Pierre-Marie, who took over the estate in 1982, now works with family members Martine and Jean-Etienne make white, rosé, and red Beaujolais wines–some from crus such as Brouilly, Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, and Saint-Amour–along with Crémant de Bourgogne as well as hand-crafted fruit liqueurs.
The estate started making rosé in 1985, and at the time it was a real rarity in the Beaujolais region. This wine was made from vines less than 30 years old, and the cuvée is called Griottes, which is the name of a particular type of cherry (the Morello cherry) in French, not only because of its aromas, but also because some of the vines that produced it are surrounded by these cherry trees (it also tastes like the exact fruit which comes from these trees!).
