2017 Les Bertrand Fleurie Vielles Vignes Cuvee du Chaos
Les Bertrand is a family estate run by the enthusiastic and charismatic 27 year old, Yann Bertrand. His father and grandfather prior to him were custodians of the 7.5 hectares of land they hold in Fleurie predominately and Morgon, Beaujolais. From a 1 hectare vineyard that Yann converted to Biodynamic farming. Vines are 80 -110 years of age on pink granitic soil. Aged for 7 months in old barrels and 500lt demi muids. Elegant and ethereal, framboise jump from the glass. The fruit wraps itself around fine tannins that keeps going. Power and structure yet delicate and pretty. A wine to drink with your wife not your lover.
