The Incredible Lightness of Beaujolais:
2019 Yvon Métras Beaujolais

Posted by Joe Salamone

When you catch Métras Beaujolais in the right vintage, 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.

There's no doubt that Métras has become the cult producer of Beaujolais. It's become very difficult to find the wines in quantity. Today's offer is a case in point. There's only two other listings for the 2019 Beaujolais in the country. 

The 2019 Beaujolais is vivacious, delivering a rush of dark minerality with floral and spice-accented purple fruits. The extra dose of power in 2019 amplifies the suave textural appeal that makes Métras so compelling and fascinating.

There's something intangible and profound about Métras' Beaujolais. It highlights how joyful and intriguing they can be. This is a bottle that you'll want to drink again and again.
