2014 Domaine du Vissoux (Pierre-Marie Chermette), Poncie, Fleurie – $24
Imported by Weygandt-Metzler. This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from 35 year old vines on pink granite soils that was aged for 6 months in used oak tuns. Alcohol 13%. The fresh, greenhouse tinged nose prepares one for the slightly fruity, clean red flavored start. Texture soon develops with watering acidity that moves things towards tangy flavors and fat-like body. The wine exhibits great balance with no edges from the supportive structure. The wine, if anything, becomes grapier with air. *** Now – 2019.
