Tasting notes for the Fleurie 2016 - Yvon Métras

  • EYE: A deep and brilliant ruby red color, with good viscosity in the glass. The appearance of the wine is very promising and hints at a beautiful tasting experience.
  • NOSE: The wine releases an expressive aromatic bouquet dominated by aromas of fresh red fruits, such as cherry and raspberry, with delicate floral notes in the background. Hints of sweet spices and undergrowth bring an additional dimension to this olfactory palette, offering a deeply complex experience.
  • MOUTH: This Fleurie 2016 offers a velvety and elegant texture, supported by fine and well-integrated tannins. Ripe red fruits unfold without restraint, accompanied by subtle notes of licorice and black pepper, providing a harmonious balance and a pleasant mouthfeel length.

 

In short: The Fleurie 2016 from the famous iconic winemaker of Beaujolais, Yvon Métras, is a refined and balanced red wine. While you can open it now, don't hesitate to cellar this bottle for 4 to 6 years to fully appreciate its evolution. It pairs ideally with dishes such as duck breast with cherries, wild mushroom risotto, grilled lamb chops, herb-roasted chicken, or a tomato and basil tart.

The master of Beaujolais

 

Yvon Métras' career begins in 1988, when he inherited the family estate of Romanèche-Thorins (in the Beaujolais region), with its 5 hectares of vineyards, and produced his first vintage. Very soon, his encounter with one of his neighbors, Marcel Lapierre, changed his conception of winemaking. Marcel, a disciple of the great Jules Chauvet, convinced him to make more natural wines.

Jules Chauvet (1907-1969) was an actual chemist by trade, interested in chemical processes such as malolactic fermentation and carbonic maceration, as well as a winemaker and successful author. He is often described as the true inspiration behind the natural wine movement, and many vintners are actively trying to follow in his footsteps and claiming to be his pupils.

Yvon Métras' vineyard is very respectful of nature. Wine making is done with natural yeasts (very few sulphites are used). Yields are low by design, the soil is plowed manually, and grapes are picked by hand only. His ancient grapevines (most were planted in 1898) produce great wines, especially his Fleuries "Cuvées Ultimes" which helped him build his reputation of master winemaker. His son Jules seems to be aiming for the stars as well.
