The Poncié cuvée is drawn from a beautiful 4.5-hectare site of 45-year-old vines on pink granite soils. It is Chermette’s most seductive and graceful Cru bottling, especially when young. Poncié is one of a handful of celebrated highland terroirs along the ridge situated high above the village (Roche Guillon is another). The winemaking is traditional, with natural, whole-bunch ferments in large concrete vats and aging in large old foudres. 

Ripe yet compact, seamlessly silky and flooded with floral and red-fruited perfume, it's a stunning example of a wine Pierre-Marie Chermette likes to describe as “élégant et aérien”, or elegant and lifted. Poncié is one of seven vineyards in Fleurie that has recently been put forward for 1er Cru status. There could hardly be a better wine to go into bat with than Chermette’s 2022.

Reviews

“From pink granite, 45-year-old vines, whole bunch. Rose perfume and orange blossom in the opening act. Is it a cliché that Fleurie smells floral? Don’t even get me started on ‘feminine’. But it does. And there’s also a pink grapefruit twist lingering high, acidity is something of a highlight here, following that grapefruit theme, the whole palate is lifted and ethereal. Granitic dust of tannins on a bitter wave, meaty finish with a lingering cherry. Very good.”
