2019 Yann Bertrand Fleurie 'Coup de Foudre'

$78.00

Place: Fleurie - Beaujolais, FRA

Variety: Gamay

Farming: Organic

The Bertrand estate was established in the 1950’s by Louis Bertrand, located in a special part of Beaujolais called ‘Grand-Pré’. This section straddles the crus of both Fleurie and Morgon and is rich in sandy granitic soil. Now helmed by Louis’ son, Yann, whose philosophy is to attain the best balance possible for the soil, as soil in equilibrium will produce grapes that best represent the terroir. The complexities of the vineyard are demonstrated through each cuvee. These are pure wines that speak earnestly of time and place.

A 2 hectare plot of 50 to 70 year old vines on fine granitic soils. Elevage in 225 litre barrels of 7+ years and demi-muids an additional 11 months aging in bottle prior to release. The fruit shines, this is a wine of power and structure. The tannins more defined than Chaos, yet still fine. The palate is fluid, there is tension and length. Blood orange, a little alpine herb, crushed rock. Decant, as it becomes more youthful with air. - Notes from Liz Carey, Vivant Selections
