2019 Yann Bertrand Morgon 'Dynamite' 750mL
Region: Morgon - Beaujolais, FRA
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 where it is grown. The complexities of the vineyard are demonstrated through each cuvee. These are pure wines that speak earnestly of time and place.
20 to 25 days maceration; rested for 8 months in 225 and 600 litre barrels of 6 years+ age
‘A nose defined by blue and black fruits, the palate has minerality and acidity at its core, all incredibly balanced and in check. Its elegant Morgon with a feminine edge yet maintains its depth and structure with harmonious tannins’ - Notes from Liz Carey, Vivant Selections
