From some of Bertrand’s older vines, macerated for just under a month then kept in smaller barrels. So many strawberries dusted with star anise and mace. Burnt blood orange and cherry liqueur. Elegant like most Fleurie, but a backbone full of minerals and earth. Cellar? Probably, if you have the patience. Young but full of legacy, 31 year old Yann Bertrand’s philosophy is simple; attain the most beautiful balance possible for the soil, as a soil with good equilibrium will produce a grape that represents the terroir where it is grown. The wines he makes are an embodiment of the beauty and intimacy one can feel drinking wines made from this region. There is something that moves like poetry throughout all of the wines. A cadence, a lilt, a beguiling tone that will make your soul slip into a deep reverie and put an immediate twinkle in your eye.
