Métras On Tip-Toe: 2018 Métras Beaujolais Fleurie Printemps

Posted by Joe Salamone

In recent years, Printemps has snuck up on us as one of the most fascinating wines of the lineup.

Printemps has Métras' indescribable textural presence, with an added beautiful energy. It's the most dynamic wine of Métras' lineup.

The 2018 Printemps is stunning, combining punch and a superb gracefulness.

Métras' unique mouthfeel, and streak of dark minerality, are on bold display in this vintage. The ripeness of the vintage adds an extra dimension of complexity. It's animated by an invigorating backbone that Printemps flaunts.

Printemps is Métras' young vine cuvée. Bear in mind that in Beaujolais, young vines aren't all that young. Printemps comes from vines which are a very respectable 20-30 years old, planted in top sites: Grille-Midi and La Madone. They are prime, steep climats situated in sandy, pink granite soils that yield a very classically feminine style that has earned Fleurie the title "the Queen of Beaujolais."

The 2018 possesses an undeniable impact of minerals, dark fruits, and flowers. There's plenty of lift along with concentration and harmony. Expect focus, length, and soaring aromatics.

In the past couple of years, our Printemps have sold out quickly. Given the sharp pricing and the response to our 2018 Fleurie VV offering, we expect this to disappear quickly.
