2017 Les Bertrand Pure Oh!rigine
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. Yann purchased this 0.75 ha vineyard in 2015. It is across the road from the eastern side of Cru Morgan. The vineyard is separated into 3 parcels - 30, 60 and 90 year old vines, planted densely at 11,000 vines per hectare. Granite soil, aged for 6 months in concrete. This cuvee is named in honour of Jules Chauvet. Luscious squashed raspberries with some savoury edges, bright and pretty along a fine spine.
