"Coup de ♥ de l'année : Une belle maturité de raisin. Une pointe de graphite et une touche minérale qui ramène de la fraîcheur. Une bouche de bonne facture. La belle définition reste sapide. Un grand vin qui surprendra." RVF 2017
Les Garants is made from a plot in Fleurie on a fine granite terroir rich in mica and quartz. Very well oriented (south-west) and harvested at perfect ripeness, this wine has a good capacity to age. It is aged in new oak casks for 6 months. Intense notes of fruit give elegance and finesse to this deep, concentrated wine.
Domaine du Vissoux is currently managed by Pierre-Marie and Martine Chermette. Situated in Beaujolais, in Saint Vérand-Le-Vissoux, the production consists of a wide range of wines such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, and Beaujolais. Vinification is carried out in a magnificent vaulted cellar with large oak casks that were made by Pierre-Marie Chermette's great grandfather. Every effort has been made to preserve the cellar's character. Pierre Marie Chermette has never left his native region; born in Vissoux, he obtained his DNO (State Oenology Diploma) in 1980 from the University of Lyon and took over his parents' property at the age of 22. As passionate about wine as he is about his region, he devotes himself full-time to managing the Domaine. As for Martine, after completing her studies in Business, she joined the team in 1990 and quickly developed the domain's export sales. The Chermettes have found success through combining traditional and modern approaches. They have firmly established themselves amongst Beaujolais' most reputable producers.
