2019 Yann Bertrand Les Bambins Saint Amour
31 year old Yann Bertrand’s philosophy is simple; attain the most beautiful balance possible for the soil, as a soil with good equilibrium will produce a grape that represents the terroir where it is grown.
17 days maceration, rested for 8 months in 225 litre barrels of 6 years plus age. Shy on the nose initially, this opened beautifully with air, soft herbs and cherries. There’s a plumpness to the fruit, with sage and marjoram, a mineral core peppered with pepper. Incredibly focused, graphite, fine grippy tannins, elegant and long.
