Wine of the Week : Pierre-Marie Chermette, Les Griottes, Beaujolais 2013

This organic Beaujolais has great expression of fruit and very true to the varietal, Gamay.

Star bright ruby in colour with distinct purple high lights. Very lifted and pretty nose of strawberries and some faint mulberry and leafyness. 

Palate of fresh red fruit and some red berry compote, blueberry subtleties and hints of mushroom. Acidity is lively and gives a good backbone that holds it together. Youthful , feminine and vibrant. 

If you like light red wine with a touch of refinement this one is for you.

(RRP $30-35) (I've seen this in a few boutique bottle shops in both Sydney & Melbourne)
