Pierre-Marie Chermette Domaine du Vissoux Pierreux Brouilly 2010

Gamay seems to divide as a grape, with most it seems not taking it particularly seriously.  It is capable however of serious expression in some of the villages in the Beaujolais region, and locally there are some quality minded producers experimenting with it as well.  Personally, I quite like the grape.   This wine is bottled under screwcap, from 60 year old vines, and is grown in volcanic soil.  The wine presents with a medium intensity ruby colour in the glass, and light aromatics of cherry and spiced red currants.  The palate has some wood spice, medium length, red plums, stem and between medium and high acid.  This very balanced and drinkable wine sits somewhere between a savoury and fruity expression of Beaujolais, and there is not a banana skin to be seen.  Good
