Cuvée presentation

Following in the footsteps of his father Yvon Métras, Jules Métras took charge of two hectares of Gamay vines to craft fine Beaujolais wines that seasoned enthusiasts have started to actively seek. This “La Montagne” Chiroubles comes from a parcel not far from the Fleurie appellation. Around 40 years old, the vines grow at 450 metres of altitude, which is quite high for the region.
In the glass we find a light, ruby-coloured wine that announces a delicate, aromatic bouquet of red and black fruit, violet, and toasted touches. Fine and flavourful, it has a beautifully round palate in its first five years. We recommend serving this cuvée with a simple dish; why not pick something regional like Lyon charcuterie or a pie with mushrooms.

Information about domain Jules Métras

Jules Métras brought back to life a hectare of vines that had been abandoned in order to create his first vintage in 2014. His father, Yvon Métras, a big follower of natural wine and the movement created by Marcel Lapierre and Jean Foillard, made a name for himself with his 'Fleurie Ultime' cuvée which became an icon of Beaujolais. Following in the steps of his father, Jules Métras is now making his own contribution to the noble Gamay grape. Like his father, Métras picks his fruit relatively late and uses carbonic maceration to give the wine a good aromatic complexity and soft tannins. Jules Métras has finally found his path: while his father placed finesse above everything else, Jules favours density and minerality. Watch this space!
