Importer Note:


Les Garants represents Fleurie's yang to the Poncié yin. It's altogether darker, more masculine and visceral than the more feminine charms of Poncié. Here we taste denser, more opulent fruit buttressed by powdery tannins. Perhaps this shouldn't be a surprise; Les Garants used to be part of Moulin-à-Vent, a Cru famed for its regal fruit and tannic depths. The Chermettes farm 2.7 hectares of 35 year old vines, south-west facing, on pink granitic soil rich in mica and quartz. The step up in register here is confirmed by the change in elevage where a small percentage of this wine (approximately 10%) seeing small format barrels.

Importer Note:

Owners Pierre-Marie and Martine Chermette were among the first in Beaujolais to use sustainable agricultural practices, shunning the use of any chemicals in the vineyard and encouraging as much life in the soil as possible. They prune hard to keep yields low, harvest by hand when the grapes are fully ripe and regularly carry out ‘green harvests’ to further reduce the yields and ensure full ripeness for the harvest. The wines are made with minimal intervention: wild yeasts, minimal sulphur additions and no filtering if possible. Ageing is in traditional up-to-the-ceiling, neutral oak casks.
