Bertrand Saint Amour Les Bambins 2021
Yann Bertrand is a young gun of Beaujolais who benefits from a long family history of winemaking in the region. He originally didn’t want to be a winemaker, but after working in wine bars in the French Alps, he gained a new appreciation for the craft. He returned to Beaujolais and was welcomed by mentors with many vintages under their belts.
Les Bambins, or “the kids,” is an ode to the simple pleasure of a good, honest Beaujolais. It’s grown on blue volcanic rock and schist. It’s a powerful, joyful wine with aromas of cherry, raspberry, and rose petals. This one lingers on your palate. Drink now, with a light chill.
