Métras On Tip-Toe - Magnum Edition:
2018 Metras Fleurie Printemps Magnums

Posted by Ian McFadden

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. Today, I'm happy to offer Métras' 2018 Fleurie Printemps in magnums for $99.95 each.

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 is 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 that 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.

Given the sharp pricing and the response to our offer for the2018 Printemps bottles, we expect this to disappear quickly. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
