2018 Yann Bertrand Coup d'Folie
Notes from the importer, Liz Carey, on this one:
The Bertrand estate was established in the 1950’s by Louis Bertrand, located in a special part of Beaujolais called ‘Grand-pré’. This area straddles Fleurie and Morgon, rich in sandy granitic soil. The estate has a line of schist running through the property, and in comparison to other vineyards of Fleurie, theirs are 80% more sandy. The Coup d'Folie comes from a 3 hectare plot of 35-60 year old vines on sandy granitic soil. In 2018, a large portion of this cuvee has seen concrete elevage only. A vibrant nose of raspberries, stone fruit and florals.
