The Incredible Lightness of Beaujolais:
2016 Metras Beaujolais

Posted by Joe Salamone

We love Métras in vintages like 2016. In these years, they show vividness, delineation and straight-up joyful drinking.

For us, there's no better place to witness this than the 2016 Beaujolais.

When you catch Métras Beaujolais in a really good vintage, like 2016, watch out. There are few wines as delicious, agile and simply gulpable

We love the basic Beaujolais not for its grandeur and complexity, but for its lightness, lift and perfume. It's a thrilling wine to experience. The combination of levity, deliciousness and fascination is something that very few wines achieve.

The 2016 Beaujolais has beautiful clarity and finesse. It's endowed the wine with dazzling bright floral notes and stunning precision along with an emphatic mineral streak.

There's something intangible and profound about Métras' wines. This bottle highlights how joyful and intriguing they can be. This is a bottle that you'll want to drink again and again. We created special 6-pack pricing for that reason.
