Wine Guide

Domaines Chermette Origine


“The wine is emblematic of the estate where, from 1986, we wanted to bring back the Beaujolais of yesteryear. This cuvée is crafted to pure Beaujolais tradition: not chaptalized, aged in the big oak casks for 6 months. The lovely, intense fruitiness is very close to the grape itself. Concentration and freshness in the mouth make this a Beaujolais with character.

This cuvée was created in 1986 under impetus from our friend Jean Brouilly, who used to be a ‘starred’ master chef in Tarare and who wanted a very natural Easter cuvée. This was at a time when the fashion was for Nouveaus with banana flavours. We decided to make a cuvée to buck the trend: the spring Beaujolais, as close as possible to its parent grape, non-chaptalised, without yeasts and vinified using the traditional method, hence its name back then – Cuvée Traditionnelle. It has been much emulated since then! It is this cuvée that introduced the winemaking style of the estate and this is the reason why Jean-Etienne Chermette renamed it Origine in 2018.” – Domaine Chermette
