A follower of the father of the French natural wine movement, Jules Chauvet, Yvon Métras farms his 6 hectare estate using organic, low intervention methods. His vineyards are in some of the best sites in Fleurie, on steep sunny hills with vine ages ranging from 20 to 120 years. Grapes are from younger vines in Grille-Midi and La Madone crus, with sandy, pink granite soils. Transparent garnet in colour, very aromatic, with black cherry, cranberry, date, roasted herbs, a whisper of Brothers Johnson funk, black pepper and forest floor. Wild berries, bramble, trace of lavender, white pepper glide atop silky tannins and fresh acidity. Black cherry, black currant and a pinch of cinnamon linger on the plush finish. Vibrant, dashing and plump. 100% Gamay 13% Alcohol Yvon Métras ‘Le Printemps’ Fleurie 2017 #vinobiologico #vinnaturel #gamay #vinnature #vinvivant #organicwine #lowintervention #frenchwine #vinorosso #winelabel #winereview #winestagram #instawine #fleurie #beaujolais #redwine #yvonmetras #leprintempsfleurie #caravino
