Picture-Perfect Fleurie

Foillard's Fleurie stands dangerously close to being the Platonic ideal of Fleurie.

Beaujolais Distance Runner - Don't Miss Vintage:
2021 Roilette Fleurie Griffe du Marquis

If you're looking for sternly mineral and long-aging Beaujolais, Roilette is the place to look.

2022 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly:
Les Griottes de Brulhié, Godefroy, & La Chapelle

At their best, Thivin turns out Beaujolais of truly uncommon earthy depth and ageability.

Back Up The Truck - Cru Beaujolais Edition
2020 Dubost Moulin-à-vent En Brenay

"This historic estate continues to rank among the reference points for classical, age-worthy cru Beaujolais" - 2021 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly:

The Pinnacle of Py - Magnum Edition:
2017 Foillard Morgon Cote du Py Cuvee 3.14 Magnums

Foillard is one of the legends of Beaujolais, and magnums of his Côte du Py always disappear quickly.


Rare Métras Magnums -
2016 Moulin-à-Vent VV

We should set expectations right away. There's very little available. In 2006, Yvon Métras purchased a mere 0.6ha of Moulin-à-Vent near his home. In general, Métras of any kind is very hard to find in quantity. Magnums of his Moulin-à-Vent VV are close to impossible to land in quantity. 

Beaujolais: The 5th Member of the "Gang of Four" Returns - Yvon Metras

The Return of Top Beaujolais from Y. Metras! 2007 Fleurie VV and Moulin-a-Vent After a brief stint alongside the "Gang of Four" (Lapierre, Thevenet, Foillard, Breton) with importer Kermit Lynch, Metras completely disappeared from the US market. Beauj
