    Cuvée presentation

    This remarkable cuvée is, unfortunately, a real rarity. Only produced in exceptional harvests, it is the product of the domain's old vines, grown according to organic and biodynamic principles in sandy soils composed of loam and granite. Yvon Métras practices natural vinification, the result of which is this wine, highly sought-after for its red fruit aromas and lingering, fruity palate. We recommend letting this bottle rest for between three and five years, allowing its tannins to blend and aromas to develop.

    Information about domain Yvon Métras

    Yvon Métras took over the family domain near Villié-Morgon in 1988. A firm follower of Marcel Lapierre, he is also an advocate of natural wines. His five hectacre vineyard is entirely organic and his vinifcations are always carried out as naturally as possible (natural yeasts and no, or very little, sulfur). This domain is a leading light in Beaujolais thanks to the authentic and fruit forward wines that Métras produces. The demand for these wines greatly outweighs the supply.
