Made from vines less than 30 years old, this cuvée develops the freshness of red fruits. It is called Griottes because of its aromas but also because the bottom of the vines is bordered by cherry trees. It is an easy-drinking, juicy wine with fruit and freshness.

Domaines Chermette is a family-run wine estate located in Saint Vérand, in the golden stone area of the Pierres Dorées, southern Beaujolais. Combining tradition and modernity, Martine, Pierre-Marie and Jean-Etienne Chermette are fully committed to bring you really high quality, authentic terroir wines. They were among the first in Beaujolais to use sustainable agricultural practices and now their wines are made with minimal intervention: wild yeasts, minimal sulphur additions and no filtering if possible.

Not only do the Chermettes produce outstanding Beaujolais from the crus of Moulin à Vent, Brouilly and Fleurie, but they also make some of France’s most highly regarded Crème de Cassis from their own blackcurrants.
