Bertrand Fleurie Vieilles Vignes 2020

Yann Bertrand has trained under the most iconic Beaujolais producers including Jean Follaird and Yvon Metras, and it shows in this gripping old vine Beaujolais. Farming organically and harvesting by hand, it spends more time in barrel than his other cuvées. When he finally releases it after another year maturing in bottle, it’s bone-shaking good. Notes of dried roses, ripe cherries, and black pepper nail firmly in the camp of our favorite Beaujo on shelves today.
