2017 Les Bertrand Saint Amour Les Bambins
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. Blue volcanic rock and volcanic schist. Aged for 9 months in used barrels. A new cuvee named in honour of his son who was born in 2017. Violets, blackberries and beetroot, the tightly wound palate packs a punch with minerality and acidity along a long elongated spine. This is a cuvee that will be rewarded most from patience.
