Vineyard/Cellar Practices Sustainably Grown, Vegan

While reds from Beaujolais have the reputation of being simple and juicy, that does a disservice to the wines produced by masters like Pierre-Marie Chermette. Pierre-Marie and Martine Chermette were among the first in Beaujolais to use sustainable agricultural practices, eschewing chemicals in the vineyard in favor of soil health, low yields, and minimal intervention in the cellar. Wild yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur addition, and no filtration whenever possible are the normal procedures, and the wines are aged in traditional, floor-to-ceiling neutral oak casks. Always a more medium-bodied, slightly more extracted version of Nouveau, this makes a beauty for the holiday table and even cellars quite well, so no rush to drink this! Sustainably grown, vegan.
