Painfully Rare, Extreme Fleurie:
2015 Métras Fleurie VV

Posted by Joe Salamone

Nailing down decent quantities of 2015 Métras has been an adventure.

Métras is always difficult to find, but it's been incredibly difficult in 2015. Just to highlight the rarity, there are only two other listings for the Fleurie VV in the country.

2015 in Beaujolais was warm and dry, which, along with winds, decreased yields significantly.

There's an incredible amount of excitement over the 2015 vintage. An easy way to think about 2015 is that the wines are riper than the 2014s and fresher than the 2009s. The 2015s offer intense power and concentration with a bright, invigorating backbone.

Métras is well known for an extra-dimension of complexity and textural intrigue that makes the wines stand alone. Vintages like 2015 take this to the extreme, delivering saturating dark fruits, spice and an ultra-suave texture.

In Fleurie, Métras farms the Grille-Midi and La Madone. Both are top sites in prime, steep climats. The vines range from 70-100 years of age. Its signature is gorgeous perfume, violets, purple fruits and crushed rock.

Métras is one of the core producers of our Beaujolais selection. There's no need to belabor this. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
