The Story

Domaine du Vissoux is a family-run wine estate, located in the southern Beaujolais region of Burgundy. Maurice Chermette, first took ownership of the vineyard in the early 1950’s and at the time sold his wine predominately in bulk to some of Burgundy top brokers. Through great care and dedication Maurice was able to work his way up and be noted as one of the top wine producers in the area. To date the estate of Domaine Vissoux is scene as a forerunner in the region and is a firm believer that “integrated agriculture” is the way to obtain optimum success levels in the vineyard and at the winery. All grapes are manually harvested and sorted once they reach there peak ripeness. Vinification is left to occur as naturally as possible, which is why no chemical produced yeast or chaptalisation are added or occur and minimum amounts of sulphur dioxide are used.

M+Q Notes

Les Griottes translates to ‘small cherries’ and the wine is named this because of the cherry tree grove that’s on the vineyard. This 100% Gamay is light and fruit forward with juicy cherry and cranberry flavours and a silky mouthfeel. Fresh acidity balances the light tannins and hint of spiciness.

Food Suggestion

 Ham + Gruyere Toastie
